Star Stitch Cardigan

This is a perfect example of why it’s bad to have lots of projects on the go.  I finally looked into my crochet/knitting “work in progress” projects and found this gorgeous cardigan almost finished (1 hour crocheting until completion) and it’s sized 12-18 months. I started this before Orla’s first birthday and now she’s 21 months.  I’m a silly mommy!

I quickly finished if off, added a bead button (from my late grandma’s stash) and crossed fingers it would still fit Orla.

The yarn is Rowan Savannah 94% cotton, 6% silk.  It’s a hearty, nutty feel yet still soft for a toddler and I love the natural look it has.  The pattern is from Cute And Easy Crocheted Baby Clothes and has a sweet flowery/starry stitch.  It was one of the more complicated projects I’ve done but the surprisingly forgiving yarn has left it looking wearable-in-public, which is always the test for my homemade clothes.

Unfortunately after the initial excitement to try it on, by the time I got my camera out I could only capture her screaming “off!!!!” while trying to rip the button undone.  This wasn’t the reaction I was hoping for.
