What to knit for special little ones? Something warm and thick, playful yet simple, sweet and traditional. Something like this Backwards Cardigan.
I started playing with the idea of cardigan turned around and this is the result. After finishing, i feel that the playfulness, which was on top of my head all the time while knitting, has stepped aside and there is something more conventional and traditional in it. I don't mind, i love it.
Pattern: my own
Yarn: Cascade 220 wool
I really liked working with Cascade yarn (this time too) and i love this dark and warm and full shade of brown. It only took 2 skeins to finish - and still i have a bit left. I chose wooden buttons, i had darker ones in mind but since i couldn't find any, i chose these. They are perfect.
