Baby Fimble cardigan

FO: aka Fimble cardigan, originally uploaded by the pig wot flies.

It's been a while! I have wedding knitting to share, but first, let's catch up on pre-wedding FOs.

This is one of several baby cardigans I made at some point between November and February. Two were this colourway for baby girls and one was red and yellow for a bump of unknown gender who turned out to be a boy. I picked these colours first of all for my niece, because they looked so scrummy together. It was only when I was well into the body that I realised they matched Baby Pom from the Fimbles. Unintentional, but still pretty.

Yarn: Rico Design Baby Classic DK (Just under one ball of each colour per cardigan)

Needles: 3.5mm (ribbing) and 4mm (stocking stitch) circulars

Pattern: Top down raglan, made up by me. Fuller pattern on Ravelry.

Buttons came from Sew Creative. In terms of knitting time, it didn't take very long. I think the first one was knitting in 2 or 3 days. Quick and cute.
