And at the end of the day…
One cute little handmade dolly has one cute little handmade scalloped edge cardigan!
( with help from mama)
Satisfaction for all involved!
I liked such a small knitting project, easy to accomplish in one day
4.5 mm knittin sticks
Yummy soft yarn about 10 ply
Work two front panels the same
Cast on 15 st
Knit garter st for 15 rows
Repeat for other front panel
Cast on 30 st
Garter st 15 rose
Sew in ends of your three rectangles.
Then with a wool needle and wool sew top shoulder seams together of one front panel to the back, leaving space for a neck hole ( about 12 mm ea side)
Repeat other side
Sew under arm seams almost all the way to the centre. Leave a bit to be the front panel bottom edge of cardigan.
I decorated the bottom edge with some crotchet scalloping and Lily sewed a thread to tie it shut.
Beautiful cardigan Lily! She looks cosy xxx
today she got a sweet frilled skirt to match her cardigan!
