birthday party cardigan

For her fourth birthday she got this dress from us. She loves dresses. Like most girls her age. I brought the dress with me to three yarn shops until I found the right colour of yarn.

The cardigan is a Drops pattern I tweaked. Not much, but I simplified and made it shorter. You can see the details in Ravelry. Oh, and I need to find the right buttons.

She has begun itching while wearing wool. A wool-knitter-lover’s nightmare. I do not like to knit with cotton.

Also I had to bribe her to let me take photos. I hope it was just that day and not a new trend, if not I need to buy more cookies… or open a bakery.

Lucky for me she loves making faces, and she has a lot of them.


  1. Hvor er hun fin. Det er en rigtig god farve du har valgt til cardiganen.

  2. Happy birthday Astrid! I love the cardigan that your mum knitted for you. It's a lovely colour and goes so well with your new dress!

  3. Qué chaqueta tan bonita y Astrid está mayorcísima y preciosa.

  4. so so great! i can´t stop smiling! :)

  5. Happy birthday to Astrid, big girl. Time is running so fast...... I love your new blog design. Hope you are all well.

  6. Astrid is adorable! She looks very, very cute in her fab new dress and cardigan!

  7. Nydelig jakke og nydelig jente! Ull-kløen, ja.... her i huset lurer vi oss til med ull allikevel, i form av merino, alpakka, eller blanding alpakka/silke eller merino/bomull. Begge deler funker helt fint!
    Takk for hyggelig hilsen på bloggen min, forresten. Ja, gult er alltid kult!


Thank you for letting me know you were here!
