Angle

My brother in law is becoming a father for the first time in May, and this little cardigan is for the little baby, which presumably will be a boy. Since I hope for a warm summer this year, I have made the cardigan to fit the baby next winter.

The design is mine. In addition to the aesthetic considerations, I wanted to create a cardigan to fit a baby for quite a long time. Therefore, I have focused on sideways elasticity. My almost 3 year old daughter was in fact able to put it on - of course looking quite funny due to much too short sleeves and body length. It is light and sproingy and pulls itself together nicely to fit even a small baby.


I love the orange detail in all the blue stripes. It takes away the baby blue look, and in my opinion makes it look quite cool. I have also added a simple contrast stripe at the back.

It was a fast and fun project, once again with the favorite Shetland's wool. I will publish the pattern in some days, I just have to go over it a few more times.

Kjempefin design! Genialt med de oransje detaljene - fra babysøtt til kult på et lite blunk...

Wow, that's such a sweet little sweater. I love all the details and thought you put into it. The stretch is great for growing babies, am very excited that you are working on a pattern.

Skøønt lille bluse, er vild med dine effekter i orange garn. Kunne også være sej i voksen str.

Utrolig lekker! Jeg er kjempeimponert! Og tynne ullgensere er så veldig praktiske, ikke så sesongavhengige.

Tora, du er bare for god....dine talenter er skønne og jeg glæder mig hver gang du viser noget nyt. Du har snart materiale nok til en opskriftbog :)
Jeg vil gerne købe mønsteret og glæder mig til det er færdigt....

Denne var knallflott!

Diana said...

super fint!!

Du har ikke haft problemer med at strikke i shetlandsgarnet til børn? - det kradser lidt...

Vh Diana

Tora said...

Takk Diana :-) Barn er vel som oss voksne, noen syns ikke ull klør i det hele tatt, andre klør av den fineste merino. Mine barn hadde jakker av Shetlandsull fra de var 1 år, og jeg fikk aldri noen klager på det. Blir det et problem, kan man vel strikke en hals i cashmere eller noe så de ikke får Shetlandsulla inntil huden..?

Your patterns are very nice,but I feel they are too expensive.Here in North America 7$ is quite a lot of money for a pattern that is not very intricate.Here you can buy a lace shawl pattern for that price from well known designers.
