SWEET BUNTING CARDIGAN
What could be sweeter than a baby cardigan with its own colourwork bunting?
Worked seamlessly from the bottom up with a stranded colourwork yoke and fun ties that extend into the bunting string. The yarn is a super soft cotton, wool, linen and soy blend that comes in great colours, and the flags are a perfect place to use up a little bit of variegated or handspun yarn. Simple seed stitch at the edges are a classic touch.
Shown in size 20.5” / 52cm. Thanks to Jeanie for being such a cute model, Keri for letting me steal her baby, and Jasmine for her beautiful house!
