Pink Cardigan with Frilly Edging and My New Labels

Pink Cardigan

What I love most about this cardigan is the shape, it flares slightly and the frill trim that borders it doesn’t pull in like a normal rib would. I love to see little girls in dresses, but when they need an extra layer and you put on a cardigan and the rib pulls in all those lovely flounces on the dress. The flared shaping on this pattern allows it to sit so nicely over a little girls dress and allows the gathers to fall and float as they should.

Pink Cardigan PatternIt’s for my friends granddaughter who happens to be another Miss E, pattern no. 1721 by Sirdar worked in DK yarn so it works up quite quickly. It’s one I have had for ages and have made many times over the years for numerous little ladies.

Collar FrillThe frill is worked around the whole of the cardigan also forming the collar and has a gorgeous trim formed by making 6 additional chains between every other stitch.

I am also pleased to show you my new ‘The Grange Range’ labels used for the first time on this pretty pink cardigan.

Washing Instructions LabelI had a bit of bother sewing them into place so will have to give a bit more thought to that on the next project.
