Baby Cardigans

My Mom has saved buttons for years, so when I need buttons I don't go to the fabric store, I call Mom! I had unlimited access to my mother's button collection, mind you this was only her white button collection, I have had access to the black button collection and the colored button collection, they are all very impressive!

I ended up picking some solid white buttons for the pink cardigan and creamy buttons for the cream color cardigan, but I'm hesitant to put buttons on baby items, I'm thinking of doing a little tie front or make bobble buttons instead.



This pattern was so fun to design, I'm still testing the pattern, working out which neck line I like better and sizing it. Crocheting baby items are so satisfying because you can completed them quickly. I liked this cute cardigan style so much I'm making an adult size of this, I'll fill you in on that later!
Thanks for stopping by Knotty Generation.

The baby cardis are precious-nice job. I always end up using a bobble stitch instead of a buttom, but I do like the look of the buttons better.

Very cute pattern! I have a brand new DGD and another due very soon. I think they will each need one of these! The button collection must be so fun to go through!

Absolutely adorable! I have similar feelings about buttons on baby clothes but your sweaters are so cute with the buttons!

This is a very cute baby item, will this pattern be available anywhere?

I like the fullness of the second one the best. Something about that strikes me as being very in-style and adaptable for an adult; the swing style sweater is very tres chic right now. Perhaps more overly sized buttons for the adult version? Those are hip now too.

Super cute Pam!
