Making a cardigan that my sparkly-loving, heart-idolizing, energetic little girl will love is no small task. As eclectic as her taste may be, it is very specific. When I saw the “Three Flowers” Pattern in Barbara Walker’s “A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns” I immediately pictured a springtime scene, one that would be whimsical enough for my fun loving daughter. When she saw the swatch for “Spring Picnic”, she fell in love - and so did I!
