Notes

I loved this little sweater so much - I made it in a smaller size using DK on a 3.5 mm needle - the yarn seemed to call for the smaller needle size..

Then using a 4mm needle, I made a baby blanket, using the same pattern stitch as in the body of the Meadowsweet Cardieā€¦..

Cast on 107 stitches - Knit 12 rows garter stitch. Then Knit 6, Pattern 95 stitches as per Sweater body, Knit 6. I then did 9 full pattern repeats until I reached the desired length, keeping the 6 edge stitches on both sides in garter stitch, then knit a further 12 rows garter stitch and cast/bound off. Voila - a gorgeous baby blankie to match!!
