Sheep Yoke Cardigan


I mailed this sweater off to its recipient last week and it has hopefully arrived, or will shortly. I won't say it wasn't hard to part with, but it is going to a very good home, and a very pretty little baby. I thought it was time to post a couple pictures. It's only been completed for, um, a month :)

This is a lovely little project and I recommend it to anyone looking for a fun interesting baby knit. You do have to do a bit of math to get the increases in the yoke just right. I had intended to write out how I did my increases, but I'll be damned if I can find my notes on it. Anyways, don't let that scare you off. It's worth the bit of effort, even for those of us who are mathematically challenged. The pattern is free!

The sheep are intarsia rather than stranded. Either way would probably work out fine, but I felt they were spaced a little too far apart to carry the yarn. Perhaps the end result wouldn't be that noticeable one way or the other.

That's about all I can remember about this. It's only been a month, but my mind has spent that month occupied by Si's digger sweater, and the surprise project/pattern pictured in my last post. And speaking of that...Several people guessed they were mittens. Lovely mittens they might make, but nope, that's not it! Keep guessing!
