Lavender Tiny Tea Leaves Cardigan


Phew!  I finished the tiny tea leaves cardigan well within my self imposed deadline which was as soon as possible.  The toddler girl I babysit will be two years old in a week and I wanted to make her another tiny tea leaves cardi because her mom loved the Christmas one I made

This time around, I scoured the internet for a DK weight wool/cotton blend that was wash and dry-able.  I wanted the cotton content for transitional spring weather.  I found on Webs Anchor Bay by Cascade Yarns and I loved knitting with this wool. 


When I finished knitting, I did a quick soak and upon blocking the sweater, the super wash wool content made the wet garment droopy and stretched out.  I promptly popped this sweater in the dryer and my oh my, magic!  Truly wash and dry, what bliss.  Both mom and little toddler love Disney, hence the Minnie Mouse buttons.

  1. That cardigan is beautiful, Karen! And the buttons are adorable. That is what I always enjoyed about sewing for my daughter ...finding cute buttons for the garment. I often allowed her to pick what she wanted.

    On my to do list for today is to finish up the little pink baby afghan I've been crocheting. I only have about three more inches to do plus the edging. Not a problem!

  8. The buttons! So sweet. I made Paige one of these sweaters when she was a toddler, and she wore the thing to death, it was her favorite! It's such a great pattern, and wears so well. I hope the little one you made it for loves the sweater!
