Another finished project, finally. I got this one completed down to sewing the buttons on and decided to try it on my daughter before doing so. Well, it didnt fit well at all! The button band was too short, so the bottom of the front bands didn't reach the same length as the rest of the sweater. Instead, they were somewhere up around her belly button. So, I ripped it out and made it a few inches longer and here it is!

Very happy with this project as well.
It's called Cheri Cherry #201 QK by Minnowknits. Here is a picture of my dd Harper and her baby Wubzy, wearing her new striped cardigan!

She was so cute when I was trying to get it on her. She was running away from me yelling that she was going to get stuck in there! The first time I did the button bands it didn't fit her and she felt stuck. lol.

I'm glad you got those bands straightened out and got that to the FO stage. It turned out great. It is a cute little sweater, I like the vertical stripes and the little rolled collar. You DD looks precious in it.

I love the Minnowknits books. Sometimes they are real easy patterns, sometimes they kick my butt! This little sweater, and the model, is adorable!!!!

This one was pretty simple up until the button bands. But after ripping it out (and I'm so glad I did) it fits beautifully!

I am very happy I am able to do it. I just learned in April and started with a simple basket weave baby blanket (nothing simply about the impossibly tiny needle though). I am very fortunate to have a lot of time to knit. I love having FO to show off!
