Knitting with Leftovers: Baby Cardigan

Filed under: Knitting — maryparadox @ 6:21 pm

I had some leftover yarn from a cardigan I made for a pregnant neighbor and I didn’t know what to do with it. First I tried making a hat, but I didn’t really like the results:


Then I tried making felted flowers, but how many of those do you really need:


Then I had a great idea — how about a baby sized cardigan to match the original?? So I frogged the hat and made this:

Nauseating, right? I love it and it was a huge hit with the mom. The only problem is that the child will grow out of it in about a week, but I figure then they can put in onto a stuffed animal or cabbage patch kid (do those still exist?).

Mom sized cardigan can be seen here (though modeled by me, not by the mom).

  1. I am so glad to see that there are other advit kniiters in the world, closer to my age, I am South African and in South Africa, young crafters are scarce… thanks to the cyber world I feel less alone and may I just say, wow your stuff is cute and quirky, the best kind. :)
