Amelia's newest cardigan

I do love knitting baby things - they are so satisfying as they are finished so quickly. Evie is growing so fast I'm making 51cm chest (either 6-12 months or 1-2 years depending on the pattern) which take a little longer to knit.

This is the last of the cardigans I have made Amelia and I was able to finish it on the night of her birth and give it to her on our visit yesterday.

I was going to make it all one colour but decided that a contrast border and flower would set it off nicely. I embellished it with a little button too which gives the flower a nice little finishing touch.

I am hoping to make another to sell in either my Etsy or Folksy shop for £8 plus p&p. I will be making it in the same shade of Sirdar Snuggly 4ply, so if anyone is interested before I put it in my shop, please let me know. It is size 0-6 months, and 41cm chest.

I love the style if these cute cardigans, Amelia is a lucky little girl. My dollies are quite envious and threatening to pack their bags and move to your house so I'd better get busy with my needles!
