Here it is in all its glory. The pink cotton cardigan is done, pearly buttons and all!
Here are a few lessons learned.
- If you want to be clever and start the buttonband stitches on the bottom ribbing, remember to make the first buttonhole.
- Another clever thing is to put a nice lacy bit up the front, but it might be a good idea to figure out how you're going to work your decreases in.
- There is a great difference between 7 sts/inch and 8 sts/inch. This sweater, for a petite 5 year old, uses the numbers for size 12!
And now, onto the next project, whichever that might turn out to be.
