Fair Isle Cardigan

Fair Isle Cardigan

This is the Beaded Fair Isle Cardigan from The Baby Knits Book by Debbie Bliss. The pattern calls for Debbie Bliss Wool Cotton but I subbed with my favorite baby yarn Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino. I found sub recommendations at The Wool Shack as the Wool Cotton is discontinued and getting hard to find. I did change the body color from pink to beige to keep the sweater neutral. I am glad I did, because I really like it and it suits Simon very well. Also, I didn't add beads, I figured practicing one skill, the fair isle, was enough new knowledge for one project.
