meet miss scarlett's feather and fan baby cardi.
us needle 9
cascade yarns 220 wool.. in a wonderful christmas green (less than 220 yards)
pattern thanks to leigh foster can be found here
beside the obvious modification (yes i got rushed for time and did short sleeves).. i also turned the collar inward and tacked it in rather than outward. i really did not like the way mine looked showing the purl side.
i have to admit i had moments where i was sure this was going to be WAY too small but to be sure i went out to baby gap and bought a size newborn-03m onesie to check for size. once i washed the pieces and blocked them it turned out to be big enough (i think) and the feel of the yarn was softer than when knitting.
i hope little miss scarlett likes green!!!
