Birdie cardigan

It's fuchsia! It's got sweet mini eyelets! It's perfect for layering over cardigans! It's my new favourite cardigan - Birdie!

I am VERY happy with how this turned out, and can't stop gazing at the magnificent colour! The pattern is by Louisa Harding's knitwear label, Yarntelier and as per usual this wonderfully talented designer has come up with the goods. Sweet, feminine, yet a wardrobe staple, I could have one of these in every colour and still never tire of their cardigan perfection.

I used Australian Superfine Merino to knit this up, and made two very slight changes to the pattern: I omitted the bobbly edgings, and made the sleeves 10cm longer. I must say, it really is the perfect design - it goes so well with a lot of my summer dresses, and is snuggly enough to ward off any sudden chills. I am seriously tempted to knit myself another!

Project Details:
Pattern - Birdie by Yarntelier
Yarn - Australian Superfine Merino from Maker Maker

  4. This is really lovely! The photos are masterpieces in themselves too!
    I am very tempted to make this to get me back into knitting, I've only been crocheting recently and I think this would be a great maternity wardrobe stape as I could leave it open at the bottom
