A Bolero for Evelyn

I have just finished knitting another little garment

This one is a cropped cardigan for my grand-daughter.

I bought her two dresses from Pumpkin Patch for Christmas, both with yellow in them and had thought I would get this finished to include in the parcel, but ran out of time.

The main part is knitted but the edging is in double crochet with a picot edging.
It is from a pattern book by Cleckheaton No. 951 design 5.
I used Shepherd Baby Wool in a 4 ply - yellow and it is Machine Washable.

It was surprising how quick it was to knit as I did most of it in the trips to Wellington last year but the sewing up and crocheting took its time.
