New pattern, and a new cardi

I still need to finish working on the hooded cardi. So little remaining, yet I’ve started on another project. Because my favourite ever cardi, a pretty rasperry-colored ribbed asymetrical cardigan, is showing bad signs of wear. I looked high and low for a ready-made pattern, couldn’t locate the one I know I have… and settled meanwhile on the crazy collar cardigan that’s been sitting high in my queue for ages. So yest, I’m knitting again. But for a good cause… I can’t wait to wear that one ! ๐Ÿ™‚
Oh, and the pretty yarn was sent to me by a kind lady as a swap for patterns. “Fairy hare”, with angora and Merino. Looks yummy, I’ll have to decide on a pretty project to use it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love what you do with granny squares! Last year after getting your Granny Mitts pattern, I made up about 6 pairs! SO cute, so fun, some for me, some for gifts. I would love to add this granny-inspired pattern to my collection, especially since we have new babies in the family now.
    Thank you for sharing!

    I tell you these are inspired. And perfect for a beginner like me who only ever learned to crochet granny squares. Lots of my friends are having babies now so I would love to have the pattern to spread the gifts around.

    So cute! I need a copy for two reasons: 1. I have recently been acquainted with more babies than I can crochet blankets for 2. DK weight? All the pretty colors are in DK weight. This will give me a perfect excuse to use the collection I’ve amassed for no project in particular.

    I’d love a copy of this. My friend is bringing her baby back from Goa in March and I know she’d love some crochet to keep the baby’s head warm in the chilly northern hemisphere!

  34. y Reply

    Well, I’d love a copy… mainly because I’m going to be a mom! I’m 7 weeks along with my first and am not looking forward to the back problems, so I imagine a lot of bedrest in the future… with lots of baby-clothing knitting too! Maybe some for myself, too. Wait, I mean, mostly for myself… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  35. kc Reply

    because i have a bunch of close friends who have just had babies or are about to, and they all need that hat…. plus i adore the little “stem” on the top.

    My husband and I are trying for a baby now and I am busy crocheting up a bunch of cute baby stuff. I have 6 children, many nieces and nephews. As my two oldest children are quite a bit older grand-babies will be arriving within just a few short years and I know a ton of crafters that I can direct to your pattern!!!!
