FO: Kaelyn Cardigan

I'm not sure quite how I overlooked blogging about this little knit. I guess that life just got in the way, as it sometimes does!


It's the Kaelyn cardigan by Kyoko Nakayoshi, from the Fyberspates Scrumptious Babies collection. It is such an adorable little design. I love the knitted flowers along the hem (even though I had to knit bobbles and I'm normally vehemently opposed to them...), and the sweet scalloped edging. I did a few little modifications to make my life easier... I knitted the garter stitch front bands at the same time as the body (rather than adding them at the end), and I just used one button at the top, so that I didn't need to keep track of anything else as I knitted. It's gone to my new niece, who will hopefully get a bit of wear out of it before she's too big! I used Fyberspates Vivacious rather than Scrumptious, and I was really pleased with how it knitted up. The fabric really shows off the stitch patterns beautifully. It was a fun knit! I look forward to trying a couple of the other cardigans from the collection in the future...
