Sometimes a pattern comes along that makes me drop whatever I am working and start right away. This cardigan is exactly what I wanted to knit and the pattern was worth the effort. It is called Granny's Favourite and the designer is Georgie Hallam. I chose Cascade 220 super wash in a really nice shade of blue because it reminds me of my own Granny (or Nana) as I called her. I knit the size 22" chest knowing it would come out more like 24" and chose the size 5 dress length with 3/4 sleeves. The fit is great with room to grow and wear things underneath and hopefully she will love wearing it. She wasn't too keen on sweaters this past winter but, I am banking on this being a phase. The buttons are glass and I believe they are from Tender Buttons which is an amazing button store in NYC.
