Ribbed Cardigan

Another busy crafty week has gone by and progress has been made on all my projects except the granny sampler.  We have started the sewing up process this week, not one of my favourite tasks and I have to say it has got me puzzled a little, I am still trying to figure how to join all these different sized squares together, I know it has been explained but it will take a while for the penny to drop, so amidst all these musings and wonderings making this little cardigan has given me great pleasure, something simple sweet and straight forward, don't you just love it.  


Another design from Little Crochet by Linda Permann, it's made in one colour in the book
but I wanted to add more colour to it and I love the colour combination of pale teal and lilac. I have made the largest size 12 to 18 months but it is easy to make a larger version just by increasing the size of the squares or using thicker yarn and hook, then all you need to do is make the skirt wide enough to stitch onto the bodice, so versatile, I will have to make more of these to send to Loving hands and maybe one for my granny drawer too :)
