Double Cascade

I needed to make yet another baby sweater for another friend’s new baby. The first sweater completed was the Cascade sweater, using Cascade 220 (appropriately enough!). I started this only to realize that it was going to run small. I decided to keep this either for myself or as a future gift, and make my friend a different, larger sweater.

There’s a lot of detail in this pattern, and I think a larger size would best emphasize these details. But it sure is cute!

The second sweater I finished was using the My Gift to You pattern.

I used the rest of the Cascade 220 skein from the first sweater, as well as most of the second skein. It has such a unique look, with the asymmetrical neckline and simple stitch pattern.

Linking with Nicole and Ginny.

  1. I.Love.Those.Sweaters! I love the leaf detail down the front of the first. I love the asymmetry of the second one and those ever so sweet, amazing little flower buttons. (I have a weakness for buttons). I love LOVE your colour choice! So calm and soothing. Fantastic job on both.

  2. Wow these are just adorable! I love the soft and subtl colour and all the beautiful details. The yarn looks wonderfully soft and the buttons are beyond cute 🙂 This makes me want to knit baby knits all winter!

  4. Those sweaters are lovely! I’m especially partial to anything with a leaf lace pattern. I’m currently working on a sweater with a leaf-ish pattern on the back, and I just find it so fun to knit. Fantastic work!
