FO: Birthday Cardigan for Tom

Here’s a cardigan I knitted for Luke’s good friend Tom for his first birthday back in April. It’s one of the new patterns from DROPS and I really loved knitting it up.

It did take a little longer than I wanted it to as the pattern called for moss stitch on the entire jacket. But even though it did actually take a little longer I love the end result.  The moss stitch looks really good and gives the cardigan a nice character.

And Luke also seems to approve. He was too keen to be involved in the photo shoot when I was taking the pictures.

The added pockets can’t really be used as pockets, but they just add that little bit extra and make the cardigan look a little bit like a grandfather cardigan.

I originally wanted to pick a brighter colour, but then decided on this lovely denim blue. And I managed to find the nice blue buttons in my stash. All in all I’m really happy with the end result and my best friend Kerstin and handsome Tom are too.

  2. What a gorgeous cardigan and I really love the pockets. That was one of the first things I noticed and then as I got down further in your blog, I saw that you had said something about them. I love the cute photo with Luke in it. You just have the nicest buttons on your garments. They are lovely.
