Stripy Baby's Cardigan and matching hat

What horrible weather we have at the moment,  its been foggy for a couple of days and it looks like its coming in again tonight,  with rain tomorrow.
I thought we might like to see my latest knitting,  a stripy baby's cardigan and matching hat,   I knitted this in double knitting wool,   knitting all the way around until the sleeves as the wool forms the strips, so no need for a pattern and it saved trying to match up the seams.   The sleeves were knitted and joined at the armholes,  then it was knitted as a whole to the neck.
I did a white rib at the bottom, the cuffs, the border and also around the base of the hat.

Until we meet again take care


  1. Very sweet set for a wee one.

  2. Margaret you are always busy with so many things, a true crafter I feel....This is simply gorgeous...xx

  6. I love the pastel colours, just right to fit any little one and they look so warm and snuggly

  7. Awesome!!! Love the colors!!! : )

  8. I just love this set! I'm amazed you didn't use a pattern, but I know you're an expert knitter, along with your other talents at card making and, of course, tattingI
    The white yarn is the perfect touch!
