Playful Stripes Cardigan

Designer: Alana Dakos
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino - five colors
Needles: Circulars - 3.5 mm and 3.75 mm

I've wanted to knit this little cardigan for a long time - ever since Alana posted the pattern on her website and Ravelry.We were in Mahone Bay on Saturday and without a shred of self discipline, I purchased an armful of luscious Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino - natural as the main color and seafoam green, smokey pink, blue, and tan for the striping. I really like the very feminine picot edging and the soft, pretty colors. It is a pleasure to knit.

If you click on the pattern name, you'll see how pretty the sweater really is and though the little model is an absolute sweetheart, I am sure Lucy Darling will look every bit as good in this cardigan.
