Rose's capped sleeve cardigan.

I'm in the mood to finish things at the moment and was happy to cast off on this cardigan and sew it all together. It was a really quick knit from some wool that my Mum gave to me as a gift (mentioned here) but it actually took me from August til now to finish it as I just kept getting distracted by other little projects. Nothing new there then!

It's a pretty cardigan that can either be worn over dresses or can be worn over long sleeves to add another layer. I found the free pattern on Ravelry, if your interested in it then you can find it here. It's really lovely and soft but is knitted for 12-18 months so Rose will have to wait a few months to wear it. Although I quickly popped it on here to see how big it was and I don't think it'll be long before she can wear it.

I bought the buttons a couple months ago from myfabrichouse and I love them. I think they look perfect on this cardigan but I still have a load more of them, so I look forward to using them to prettify something in the future...

I know I said I was finishing things off at the moment but I'm actually just about to start hooking up Another blanket for Rose. She can never have too many... one for every day of the week! (Well that's what I tell myself anyway!)



  1. Beautiful!!!! Ah, I love Rose. She is like a little celeb on here, in my eyes!!!
    You are a clever one and how lush to be so clever with your crafts!

  2. Beautiful sweater, does it come in an adult version?

    PS I always ALWAYS end up singing that 'country roads, take me home...' song when I see your blog pop up in my blog roll. I sing 'country rose, take me home...'. Mad.

  4. Very pretty. I love the buttons too!
