Bobbly Bits

Sometimes I find a surprise in a spare cupboard like I did recently when I came across a couple of children's cardigans which only needed buttons and to be sewn together to finish them. Unfortunately when I ironed one I completely ruined the border so both of them were put away because I was making them for a couple of girls and couldn't give one without the other. Looking at them all these years later I decided to get rid of the 'ruined' one and to finish the other.

This cardigan is made with a yarn that's very similar to James C Brett Baby Shimmer only it's got tiny bobbly bits in it as well. The pattern is Peter Pan V Neck Cardigan P960 but I kept it plain and didn't bother with the stripes, pockets and bubble border which are features of the original design. So 11 years on I have a size 2 to 3 years of age cardigan for a girl who is now 12. I suspect that it might be a bit small for her :-(
