FO Friday

Last week, after I finished my Farmhouse Cardigan I was excited to see how much yarn I had left over. I could have put it back in my stash, but I decided a better thing to do was try to make a sweater for Audrey in a week. I mean, why wouldn’t I add knitting stress to the regular stress of the holiday season?
I cast on the Oxbow Cardigan by Andrea Mowry and started knitting like mad. I didn’t make Christmas cookies or party mix in order to gain knitting time. I finished it on Christmas night, and I love the results.

This is an open cardigan without buttonholes. That does not fly with a certain five-year-old. I sewed the buttons she picked out on to the sweater. She is a big fan. I did not block this sweater, because it seemed like a lot of work for something for a child. It looks fine.

This sweater pattern is sized from baby to adult. I think I’ll be making this sweater for myself soon, because now that I see it close up I adore it.

    1. When I’m knitting the kids things they keep asking when it will be done, and when it finally is done the don’t wear it that often. I’m hoping the unicorn buttons will mean it gets used more often.
