And the winner of the skein of Kettle Yarn Co. Islington DK is….. Sarah! Congrats, Sarah! I’ll be in touch soon about your address!
Original Pattern: Playdate
Knitter Extraordinaire: Laura (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Changed the solid colour baby cardi to be a stashbusting extravaganza using up 14 + different yarns and colours to add stripes and dots to this awesome cardi. Details – including great tips on weaving in ends- can be found on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: Not only is this baby cardi drop dead gorgeous, I am so inspired by how it stash busted so effectively! Laura even noted in her project page that she used more than the 14 different yarns for the stripes and dots in the stripes. If you are the kind of knitter that keeps her leftover skeins and scraps organized together by weight, then I urge you to take a look at that stash and see if you have enough for an awesome little sweater like this (could also be a great cowl in the same design, if there’s no one you know having a wee one anytime soon!). Laura does note that there were a lot of ends to weave in, and she has some great links to help weave as you go, which is worth checking out. Plus, more adorable photos of this little cutie in a fabulous sweater!
