Why should quilters have all the fun using up their scraps?
After finishing knitting Rascal's cardigan and milo, I had a couple of small scraps of gorgeous Red Ridinghood wool left - it seemed a shame to waste them.
I knew that it wasn't enough to do that much with, but I decided to be optimistic and try knitting a dolls cardigan.
Shhh don't tell anyone but I started knitting with 8 ply wool, then I changed to 10 ply and I finished up with double thickness 4 ply wool! (Is that a crime in knitting?!)
I was really happy that I still had three of the gorgeous wooden buttons that I used for Rascal's cardigan so dolly will not only have a cardigan made with wool to match Rascal's knitted clothes, but her cardy will also matching buttons.
The pattern is the poppy cardigan by Georgie Hallam of Tikkiknits.
There is something so satisfying about using every single scrap don't you think!? Especially when you know that the item made will be loved and cherished by a little girl and her dolls.
I'm kind of wishing that I had more wool scraps to use up!
