I don't remember how I came across this pattern, but I surely know that I was inspired by Amy's versions of this cardi (this one and this) and used her mods to make mine. I love the finished version of it, eventhough I did mess up the pattern a few times and did not rip back to correct it. I challenge you to find the mistakes.
Despite all the cuteness little did I know before my baby was born whether this colour would suit her. Well, it does not. She looks so pale in it. She clearly has my complexion and is more of a reds person.
And it looks as if she knows it. As soon as she has this cardi on and I get the camera out, she gets all restless and will not let me get a decent shot of it.
These were the best ones we could do. We packed it away already. It might be a nice present to some more appreciative baby. Believe me, we do have enough wearable knits and can afford to be picky.
