Mama Style ~ Maddie Style


The In Threes baby cardi is done! (but not blocked)


You can see all of the details on my Ravelry page HERE. I had a little trouble deciding on buttons for this sweet little cardigan, until I found these in my stash! They are red with wood checks, very interesting. I don't really know where I got them from though I suspect that they were in an old jar of buttons that my great grandmother, "Granny Dear", gave me. They are just perfect! As I was getting ready to take the pictures I mulled over what dress I should use, then I thought "What would Maddie pick?" You see more and more lately this little lady of mine is teaching me about thinking outside the box. So I told Maddie "When mama is done taking these pictures, I want you to have on an outfit that you think will match this cardigan good."

And here it is. I think she may have shown me up a bit! Who would have thought? She has on her pink twirly skirt, a too short red and white dress from Target, a pink ribbon sash she pulled from her hair bow collection, and a pink silk headband. Perfect. This is Maddie style.


She wanted it unbuttoned in the pictures too. There we have it, a new cardigan that can be worn Mama style or Maddie style. I love this kid. xo, Sam

What a cute cardi!!! I love your little fashionistas choice of dress for the sweater, it is perfect.

Anna,

No, this isn't my design. :) But you can see all of the details (yarn, pattern, needles) here: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/mamacaffee/in-threes-a-baby-cardigan

And it was a very easy pattern to do! It is my first cardigan to ever knit, so that's saying a lot!

xo,
Sam

That's lovely. I've been yearning to knit lately. I guess I should just start a project. I wish Emily would wear layers though. I'd love to make something like that.
