Vintage style

Here's my not-so-wee baby modelling my latest knit, which I finished off a few days ago.
It's a vintage style baby cardigan by Sirdar, which was printed in Knitting magazine as well. The yarn is Rowan Purelife Organic Cotton 4ply, part of a bargain bag from Kemps Wool Shop. I paid a fiver and got four balls of this, and six balls of the DK version in grey.

The cardigan was a very easy make, and only took two and half balls of yarn. The moss stitch texture looks and feels lovely in cotton, although the original pattern called for acrylic. It's a great pattern, and I'd highly recommend it as a quick and cute baby gift.
