The Cardigan That Might Be Cute

Well. Here it is. My first sweater design. In progress. Truthfully, I'm not sure how I feel about it.

My inspiration for this design was the cute stripey beret I made for my daughter.
I just love how the colors blend together and wanted to mimic the stripes in a matching sweater.

Right now I am working on the yoke, which will be striped, just like the beret, pulling together the border colors on the body and sleeves.

Here it is all laid out with the beret so that you can get an idea of what the finished piece will look like.

Sometimes I think that this little sweater will be adorable once finished. Other times I think it may be the grossest thing I've ever laid eyes on.

It's hard to visualize a garment while it's in production.

Several times I have knitted a sweater for myself and hated it when it was on the needles. Then once it is seamed, blocked with buttons sewn on it transforms into something quite amazing.

I haven't given up hope for this one.

If it turns out well you can expect to see it in completion modeled by a little person and the pattern will be available for purchase.
