Over the past few weeks I’ve knitted quite a few small cardigans… but most are still awaiting their final assembly. Not so for little Oscar, that one is finished!
It’s a classic ‘grandpa cardigan’ with a generous collar that folds back on itself. Probably the best kind of cardigan that anyone, big or small, should treasure in their wardrobe.
This is a little oscar, sized around 6 months. And yes, there’s a new Clover hat in the background there to wear with the fine cardi. I’ve used Malabrigo Rios yarn for this project, colorway Anzules. The buttons were hiding in my button jar.
It’s a fun construction and knit totally flat, leaving just the underarms to be seamed. Hence the reason why it took so long to make it’s appearance here. And this is what it looks like of the hanger and on a doll…. no real babies around so a doll was the next best thing…. ( Cardigan Knit Sweater – Himiko )
