Yay! I am so pleased to be able to share photos of the finished cardigan I’d been knitting for our grand daughter, aka Toddler Viking. Pattern is Sirdar 1219 and I chose to knit sleeves & lower body in a fun variagated yarn, but a plain yellow for the bodice part.
Pattern called for a Sirdar Bamboo DK, I substituted for a Gründl acrylic/polyamide mix, also DK weight.
In all, cardigan, in size 2-3 years, required approx 120g of the variagated and 30g of the plain yellow.
Once I overcame my fears of having to follow a stitch pattern, for the bodice part, I really enjoyed knitting this project.
I was less at ease with the picking up of stitches (evenly) for the neckband and two front bands . . . and had a slight ooops with spacing my button holes . . . but all in all, I am rather proud of how it turned out. So pleased with the progress I’ve made in following a knitting pattern, in fact, that I’m all set to cast on and start a new project! Stay tuned!
