3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Jack & Jill Hooded Kid's Cardigan...*IMAGE & TEXT HEAVY* w/ pattern link :o) on: May 16, 2008 08:41:47 PM
My friend's son (Filip) is turning two years old and I've been invited to his birthday party on Monday. I've been knitting this sweater on and off for the past month. It's an easy pattern and quite adorable so I wanted to share the pics and the link with everyone.

FREE PDF PATTERN: Click "Jack & Jill" from the Rowan Knits website

DOWNLOAD OPTION 2: Go to http://www.knitrowan.com/html/freepatternarchive.asp
- Select "2001" and it's listed as one of the "January 2001" patterns
- The PDF link is eight patterns down from the top of the list.





I used various techniques to add some extra detailing to the sweater and make it a tad more special for the recipient. Truth be told, I was starting to go batty from the endless rows of stockinette stitch so I needed something to break it up and keep my attention.

1.) INTARSIA: Personalized the sweater by knitting in Filip's name at the back. Alphabet chart available here






2.) DUPLICATE STITCH: Found a cute bear chart that fit perfectly on one of the front panels of the cardigan. Bear graph available here




3.) KITCHENER STITCH: My first attempt at creating a seamless join for the hood seam. Not perfect but satisfactory. I was quite pleased even though I didn't truly achieve a "seamless" look. A bit lumpy, bumpy. Just thrilled that I have a new knitting technique under my belt. Yay!






...and just because I'm giddy with accomplishment here's some more shots of the cardigan. I'm still pretty new to creating knit garments so any success story is a big deal for me. Thanks for looking! Hee hee!

Thank you so much!

p.s. Janey...what a wonderful idea. Will have to make a beret for the next one I make.  Grin

Others have already posted their amazing "Summer Swing Top" creations so I thought I'd add mine to the list. I've always loved Sailor dresses for little girls so I chose navy and white for the colors and ran with it.

I also added more length to the white ("skirt") portion of the pattern to give more "growing in" room for the baby. I made this for my cousin's little girl who just celebrated her first birthday. I'm quite thrilled with how cute it came out and my cousin loves it so I'm happy.  Grin



PATTERN: Available at http://www.freepatterns.com under the "Knitting" and "Children's" section.

I just hit "This Rocks" and said that the intricate finishing details you added to the sweater makes it so worthy of being a featured project. In total awe of your skills!  Grin

Love the neutral color and the stitches are so neat and even. Wonderful creation!

Ditto what everyone else has already said. Colors are outrageously fantastic and your curls are too lovely. I am currently in the midst of severe "perfect hair" envy. Great job with the cardigan!  Grin
