Hi everyone! Smiley



This is the Carie Cropped Cardi from Fitted Knits. I couldn't find the recommended yarn (Cascade Magnum) So I used Brown Sheep Burly Spun. It is an xmas gift for an 11 year old, and I think she'll like the colour a lot. I'm attempting an entirely handmade holiday,so she'll be getting this set, and a Harry Potter scarf.



I expected it to take a while, but I think I knit both the cardigan and the hat in one weekend.  Super fast knit. The hat is a modified cabled helmet from Vogue Knitting on the Go: Chunky Hats and Scarves. I went down from a 10mm to a 5mm, and added a pattern repeat. And didn't do the earflaps for it.



Thanks for looking!

Edit to add: I thought I should add the links to these on ravelry. Lots of craftster are already on there, and it'll be open to the public soon enough.

That is super cute.  Love the colour (can't wear it for the life of me, but I can admire it on others) especially.  Way to go.

Very cute.  And good for you for attempting an entirely handmade holiday.  Hope all the recipients of your gifts appreciate how much time and thought you've spent in making things for them.

I love that hat! I am working on the bold and bulky mini cardi from fitted knits and that thing is flying it's going so fast.  Nice work.
