My first-ever garment -- a cardigan for my new niece, Emily. Still a WIP, as you can see, though very nearly finished. I'm using Rowan DK Cotton, which I love, in a pretty celery green for the main color and a pale yellow for the collar. I'm planning on a striped hat in green and yellow and green booties to match. It's a Debbie Bliss pattern and has been very easy to follow. Collar, edges and cuffs are in garter stitch, while the rest is in stockinette. The pattern is for the 9-12 month size, though it looks like it would fit a 2-year-old!

Hey, that looks great! Lovely colours. So much nicer than the usual pink or blue ;)

Thanks! I'm not much for the typical baby pinks and blues. :-)

Love the colours ! Most of Debbie's patterns come up large but that's good for baby knits - there's nothing worse than knitting something for baby only to find they've grown out of it before you finish!
