Yay!! I have finally finished Kaelen's Cardigan. The buttons are on and she's wearing it and smiling.
This is the seed stitch cardigan in Baby Knits For Beginners by Debbie Bliss. I made the size for a 3 year old, lengthened the body and arms, and there you go it fits my almost 9 year old. I made this in Diamond Baby Pima instead of Baby Cashmerino. The yarn is nice and soft 80% pima cotton and 20% alpaca, although Kaelen says it is a tiny bit scratchy on her bare arms.
