Wee daffodil cardigan


Garter Yoke Baby Cardigan by Jennifer Hoel

This year spring is all about baby knits.  Three friends are all having babies in the next few months so naturally I have teeny tiny sweaters on my mind.  This is the first of several I have planned, and it turned out just right.  The photos are a little muddy (darn March light) but the yellow is just like a daffodil - perfect cheery yarn for gray windy days.  Even better, I'd had the yarn sitting in a basket in the living room for more than two years - hurray for stash-busting!  The yarn is a twisty sport-weight alpaca from Frog Tree and was nice on the fingers, though it's really kinky until it's blocked.  Next up is something in dramatic red - cause it isn't all daffodils and buttercups ya know.

Lucky baby! It came out great. The green band add a nice touch and looks like a design feature. Well done on this one.
