Incredibly fast and fun knit. I’ll be knitting Cori another one of these in the next size for the fall. The 18 month size fits her nicely right now (she’s almost 11 months old and in the 95th and 75th percentiles on height and weight respectively). I will add a couple more inches to the length next time too as this one hits her right at the waist.
For now I’m leaving the buttons off. She would just try to eat them and I really think this cardigan looks cute open. Tough to photograph the cardigan on her as she is constantly in motion now.
I was pleasantly surprised at how soft and nice to knit the Essential was. Great deal to knit this sweater for $13 (3 balls of essential and $2.50 for the pattern)
