Cardigan for Darcie part 1

I wanted to knit a couple of cardigans for my cousins, daughter Darcie. The first pattern I wanted to try out is Maytime by Kim Hargreaves from a book called Rowan babies. It is knitted in James Brett supreme gentle 4ply. I am not a fan of acrylic but this one knits up well, it's really soft. It's a lovely combination of crochet and knit. I loved using crochet edging instead of picking up lots of knit stitches. For more details of the pattern and yarn see my Ravelry page

I love the crocheted picket edging around the neck and sleeves...

It was great fun making the little granny squares!

I love knitting small people's clothes, they are so cute!
I will follow this up with the second cardigan from the same pattern book, watch this space...


  1. Its lovely, its brilliant how you have been able to seamlessly combine knitting and crochet

  2. A great way to avoid pucking up knit stitches, I loved it. I definitely would use the technique again.
