PeaPod for Clover

I'm happy to say that I FINALLY finished the Pea Pod Cardigan. I love the color, love how soft it is and I love the lace panel and border edgings. The details truly make this sweater very special.

I knit this adorable sweater for my friend, Julie's granddaughter to be, Clover. Since I have no little babies of my own to knit for, this was the perfect excuse to be able to knit this. (I used the second smallest size.)

I was slightly disappointed in the border chart which, I believe, has a few mistakes in it and took me FOREVER to figure out. (I'm surprised that they haven't corrected the changes yet...or maybe they have and I just couldn't find them.)

If I were to make this sweater over again, I'd try to knit the sleeves in the round and then sew into the armholes OR I would pick up stitches around the armhole for the arm. There was a bit more sewing up than I'm used to. (I really like knitting in the round.) Though, I was very happy with button band and the whole design overall.

This is one of my favorite baby sweaters to knit and I would definitely use this yarn again. (The only drawback is that it's not washable.)

Have a great day! (would love to know what you think!)
