Erin's Cardigan

Pattern: 28b. Blouson from Phildar's Pitchoun ete collection 2006
Size: 6 years
Yarn: Phildar Aviso in Campanule (7 balls) et Blanc (3 balls)
Needles: 4mm & 4.5mm Addi Turbos

I finished this cardigan a while ago... maybe in early October. She was able to wear it for her school pictures. I enlisted my mother to sew in the zipper and 4 broken needles later it was in. Thanks Mom! One little difficulty that I (we) had was getting the zipper in. The side trim is very thick and the sewing machine didn't like going through all that knitted fabric. But it fits her and she likes it a lot.

So cute! I've never tried sewing a zipper in and you've made me glad I haven't.

Cute! Zippers scare me...

Wow! That looks so great on her! I'm terrified of zippers in knits. Only buttons for me thus far! ;)
