A Little Handmade Gift


I have recently been invited to a baby shower for my friend due in a few months, and I knew a special handmade gift was in order.

I again used my precious supply of Patagonia wool to knit up a Cradle Cardigan by Hannah Fettig for her new little daughter. This is a basic design in a classic color but I think it will be so useful.



The cardigan is paired with a hand sewn Geranium Dress designed by Made By Rae and....






I found this pattern for free on The Purl Bee and modified it for the sport weight yarn to match the sweater. I thought this hat worked really nicely with the cardigan due to the garter stitch details.



I look forward to giving this special handmade gift to my friend. I hope her and her new baby love it.

I love the pieces you've made here. Nothing better than a handmade gift! I've always loved knitting and my grandma gave me her old sewing machine for Christmas so now I'm teaching myself to sew! Any tips?

So beautiful! How do you get the lovely stitching at the sleeve/shoulder seam? Or is that part of the pattern?
