I was recently gifted three balls of Nashua Handknits' Painted Forest, which amounts to 165 yards of super bulky weight. I decided to find out if it were enough to knit a cardigan for the baby. I figured I could extend the body and arm lengths, if need be, with some other yarn. And that's what I did. Here it is, a quick cardigan, sized 9-12 months, in lovely, thick, variegated wool.

a pattern which was featured in same colorway. So, no surprises in the FO, it looks almost identical to the photo featured in the pattern. However, I did a few modifications and added the lace strip at the back of the leg and did a couple of extra repeats.This toe-up pattern is easy enough to fellow and memorize and I made sure I bound off very loosely, so as not to have a tight picot edging. And I am particularly partial to the butterflies on the top.
