Hello everyone!

I recently went to my cousin's wife's baby shower (they are expecting their first child, a little girl!) and I decided to made a homemade gift. I have only every crocheted dog sweaters :p but I thought I'd try my hand at crocheting a human sweater! haha



I used this pattern from Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/cable-sweater-8

I made the smallest size (6 months) and instead of doing the hood, I just did a folded over collar.

Close-up of the cables! I thought it was going to be so hard, but it was pretty easy!


I was pressed for time to finish the sweater in time for the shower, so I didn't get a chance to take good quality photos. This is the actual colour of the yarn, a pastel pinky-purple.

Thanks for looking!

What a lovely gift. I didn't realise it as crochet at first.  It is really good.  I love the cables. Didn't know you could crochet cables.  Tongue
