Another little cardigan for a boy. I really like this yarn and wish it was still available...Phildar Loisirs 139 used double.

So cute! I really admire all of you who do sweaters. Ever since my granddaughter was born in September I have tried to talk myself into doing sweaters but I keep getting cold feet! I think I keep talking myself out of attempting them because I honestly don't think I would do well with seams. I know I have to get over that fear and just take the plunge!

Looks great! Did you use a pattern, or did you create this one yourself too?

It really isn't as bad as it seems once you do it! Or you could always try a seamless pattern for your first sweater to make it a little easier on yourself!

lgoddard Good news, no seams unless you count a three needle bind off for the shoulders. Look around you can probably find a pattern without seams. And thank you for the comments.

There is a story to go with the buttons. I thought I'd used white but then didn't think I'd like it. I had some brown, etc, but not what I wanted. I called my old friend who used to have the LYS and asked if she had any aqua buttons. She just happened to be sorting through her buttons that morning, by color. She said she didn't have many, but I could take away any I liked. So I got these.

I'm hoping to sell it.

Thanks everybody!

That's darling!
I love that yarn.
I have a Phildar booklet of baby things and it's hard to find yarns that give the same look.
There are a lot of really nice yarns I've used over the years that are gone now.

That is just adorable! Did you use a pattern? I'm knitting a sweater for my new grandson, but don't have a pattern I really like. I love yours.
