FO: Baby Boy's Tapestry Cardigan
The yarn: Rowan Tapestry (soy)
The buttons: steel with onyx centers
The book: Bouton d'Or (out of print)
The pattern: Chocolatine
Size: 6 mo.
The baby: Varriano's baby boy due in July (baby shower in August)

Hope you like it! I am surprised I like it so much! As I was knitting it, I was having second thoughts about it. It looked so blah. But, all seamed up and buttons sewn on, I like it very much! (I used Stash Yarn, left over from my Viking Knits Cabled Scarf.)





Here is the model sweater in the book. That is why it's called "Chocolatine".
It looks like a ice cream Sundae with cherries on top!

ArtLady, wow, what a wonderful job!!!!

When my children start having children (not for a long time though), I'm gonna have to commission you to knit for them!

Wow!
