Cardigan for Rhiannon

When I saw that Rhiannon had arrived I decided to make this classic swedish vintage cardigan. It´s from a book that was published 1950. The book was written by a committee from the governement. At that time 97% of all childrens clothes where homemade and the purpuse of this book and the work of the committee was to simplify this task This cardigan is knitted from front to front in short row technique to shape the yoke
and cuff
I think it´s cute and it will grow with the child to. I knit in cotton, I think that´s a good choise for babies

Ohhh Karin, the cardigan is lovely! It will be perfect for her. Rhiannon is a sweet little baby, she doesn't cry all the time and she sleeps well, for a baby who's not even a month old! When I get to hold her she always studies my face seriously then smiles just a little...

Your kitty cat is quite a good supervisor!
