I love these little sweaters! I can make one of these in three hours now - and they are so cute - very addictive too!! I made these seven in just a few days. I like to make them in very soft acrylic - yes, I said acrylic - young mums just don't want the bother of having to do all that time consuming careful hand washing nowadays. Can't say I blame them.
These little jackets take less than 50 grams of yarn each - which means I can use up oddments of yarn and make up colour combinations to my heart's content. I have been using Panda Angoretta - I ADORE this yarn - such a pity it is discontinued now!! I buy as much as I can get my hands on when it appears on ebay - but I do have to fight for it!
The little yellow one is in Wiggles yarn - a friend kindly sent me some from USA earlier this year. I love it so much - I had two 50 gram balls each in red, yellow and blue. Now another friend wants to send me some yarn as part of a Christmas Exchange - so I think I will ask for some more - there is a gorgeous white, pale lavender and a pale yellow.
The pale blue and white, the apricot pink and white, the deep pink and white, the mint green, and the white yellow and navy are all in Angoretta. The pale turquoise is in ordinary soft acrylic DK.
The buttons are all from daverun on ebay - the best button seller in the whole wide world!
