FO Friday..........A Teddy Bear Baby Cardi.



Happy Friday !!!! I hope you've all had a good week. I'm back today to show you this little cardigan, that I've just finished for my soon to be born nephew.


I saw this sweet pattern in the Jenny Watson Baby Boutique Book 1, I used Patons Smoothie DK, that I had in my stash. I don't usually like the feel of acrylic yarn but this is really nice to work with, it feels very soft and it didn't make my fingers sore like most acrylic's. Even better, I've just looked on the net for it and it's less than £3 for a 100g ball so the 0-6 months has cost me less than £6 to knit.


I've also been making more tissue holders but have adapted my pattern slightly, instead of crocheting it in one and sewing the seams, I made two sides and double crocheted them together. I think I like this version better.



Another thing I've been crocheting are quick and easy wash cloths, I got the pattern from Cute & Easy Crochet by Nicki Trench. They make great gifts, together with a nice bar of soap or some shower gel.



If you'd like to take a look at other FO's check out Tami's blog.


Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend, my friends.

I adore each project posted here. They look fabulous! The cardi is so dang cute. The tissue holders are lovely and I like the idea of DCing the sides together rather than seaming w/yarn and needle. The washcloths look great. I need to make some for our bathrooms as I'm uh slow to wash towels and such.
