I just love vintage knitting patterns for children, all of those familiar designs from when I was a child.
When I was a girl, my cardigans were all handmade by either my mum or my grandmother. As a child I never had a cardigan like this, because when I was young, everything was very stereotypical and only boys would have a cardigan with a big blue car and a pick-up truck.
This was a very old Sirdir Snuggly pattern (number 3236) made in King Cole Cherish Double Knit, which is one of my favourite yarns. I managed to track the pattern down on Ebay
I have a quick update on what our little elf friends have been getting up to. recently
Just one more day to go - not that I am counting or anything.
