This is my first attempt at a sweater of any kind, hehe! I'm sooooo excited to have finished this for a baby shower in a couple days. I found the pattern for it on Ravelry, designed by fawn pea. It is a top-down raglan sleeve cardigan.
Here are some pics!
The first shows the button band and front striping detail. suzeeq and brittyknits helped me a good deal on the button band which was intimidating for me. The second shows my daughter's Pooh wearing the cardi, hehe! Couldn't resist. I did have to frog one of the sleeves as it was 2 rows to short.
The yarn is Caron Simply Soft in Gray Heather, Black and Autumn Red. This is for a boy. :D Working with this yarn was ok, the only problem I had was with flaws in the gray heather yarn. I had to cut out several sections of the working yarn and weave in the ends. This made me less than happy, but I like the softness of the FO.
All in all it was a blast to knit, and quick to do.
ps. this is the first time I'm posting pics online, lol! Thanks to my dh who showed me how, there's no stopping me now!
