I have something lovely to share with you today.
No….not Miss Button, gorgeous as she is.
The hot pink loveliness!
Ma has made not one, but two of these lovely cardigans for Button this summer. As well as the pink one featured here, there’s a white one too! They’re such a super basic as they go with everything. Sleeveless, short sleeves, long sleeves…yep…they’ll work.
It’s a great little cardigan for cooler spring weather, or the end of summer days when you just want to take the chill off of shoulders. Or, even, layered over long sleeves on cooler days.
Can we talk about the little “pleated” frill along the bottom hem? Too adorable, no?
The yarns, being cotton, are machine wash and dry-able. Perfect for a young lady who loves getting up to mischief and mayhem.
The white one recently had blackcurrant juice spilled down it. A quick wash with a spot of bleach…et, voila…good as new.
I cannot recommend this pattern enough. It’s a quick knit that results in a cardigan that gets worn again and again. It’s pretty without being twee, but grown up enough to make the heart of a 9 year old girl happy.
