Polly Cardigans – Made by Ma!

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.

      Thank you. They were quickly snapped with my iPhone when we were out for supper on the last day of the holiday. I’m really rather pleased how they turned out. It helps that Button knows how to pull a pose out of the bag at the drop of a hat!

  3. Isn’t button looking so grown-up? She is gorgeous and will no doubt break more than a few hearts. That cardi is lovely. The colour is great and the knitted border looks fabulous. How kind of Ma to knit them. Lucky girl. Xx

      Thank you. She is looking terrifyingly grown up. I can’t believe she’s 10 in January. The years really do fly by.
      She’s already breaking her Daddy’s heart! 😉
      Ma is a star for the lovely knits she makes for them.xx
