My little niece, Sophia, aka Tiny, was 1 year old last week. I made her a birthday cardigan and yesterday Rob and I went down to my parents' for lunch and got to hand it over in person. This is what happened.
Ooh look, a present.
Mummy had better help open it.
I think she likes it. :)
Started: 8 September
Finished 30 September
Pattern: Maggie's Flower Tunic by Nancy Barrett with the addition of sleeves.
Mods: The sleeves and an i-cord bind off in the contrast colour on hem and sleeves.
Yarn: Adriafil New Zealand Multicolour. Under half a ball of the purple colourway and just over a ball of the rainbow pastel colourway. The yarn was a lovely gift from friends when I was in hospital.
Needles: 4.5 mm circulars
Buttons came from Sew Creative. I wish I'd made it bigger. It's sized for an 18months child, but Sophia, like the rest of our family, is on the large side for a one year old. In future I need to take this into consideration! It fits now, though the sleeves are a little short, but I suspect it won't for long.
I'm working on a hat to semi-match.
