Another little coffee bean cardigan

I finished another little coffee bean cardigan, this time for Evie. For those of you on ravelry, I would well recommend getting a copy of the download as it is such an easy and straight forward pattern, with lovely results.
I love the way the raglan shapings are done by a YO, and they set so nicely, the cardigan doesn't need too much blocking at all (none done in the photos!)

I used about 2 balls of the plum and 1 of the red (cashmerino and rialto aran respectively), and love the way it turned out. The fact there is no seaming either is even better!

I made the 12 month size on 4.5mm rather than 5mm needles and it fits Evie perfectly. She is a happy little girl.

Hello dear Esther.
I like the colors on the cardigan, looks really cute on. =)

I didn't see your comment on my blog (from jan. 29th) before now, I am sorry about that! You will come to Norway to snowboard? When and where?! That is sooo great! =D

Have a lovely weekend.
Hugs Beate

Hi Esther!
I do love the cardigan. You are right, the YO increase adds such a lovely character to the garment :D
A very nice model too ;)
