Meet Lottie:  A cardigan worked from the top down, a cowl, and a beret. I'm partial to these simple designs since they include my favorite garter stitch. But I had fun working a bit of 2x2 ribbing into the pieces, too.

Patterns are available here:
Madder / cardigan, accessories, or the set
Ravelry / cardigan, accessories, or the set

All 3 pieces are worked in Lark by Quince & Co. The garter stitch ridges look amazing in this yarn! (The cardigan is shown in Dogwood, the cowl is in Frost, and the beret is in Storm.)

These photos were taken on Mother's Day. She was in a rather giving mood and actually let me photograph her! No bribes or anything. Of course, it only lasted about 10 minutes and then she was done. But it was a nice gift. No photography subject gives me more pleasure than my babe.

Have a great weekend everyone,
xo

Awh. What a sweetie. Do you know what I like best about Immie growing up? That you will be increasingly creating more amazing pieces for big kids :-)

madder said...

Double Aw. Thanks, Nancy!

Em said...

love. and why have I never thought of a cowl for a little one? makes so much more sense than a scarf!

madder said...

I made her the cowl because she kept wearing mine! It was time she had her own...

I'm in love. Just purchased the set!

Jordyn said...

She is so precious. I'm a sucker for big, brown eyes!

That sweet sweet girl. Such a charming smile and looks great in handknits too!

madder said...

Thanks so much, everyone!

What a great little collection! And that combo of pink and grey is fantastic. (I'm hoping for adult-sized versions)

madder said...

thanks, Nicole!
I haven't been a fan of pale pink since I was 12...but dogwood with frost and storm have converted me.

She's beautiful, Carrie! I love these photographs and how Immie's personality is peeking through. And the knits are gorgeous too.

And I hear you on the uncooperative toddler. Olivia is *impossible* to photograph these days. Fortunately, her brother is a lot more amenable to staying put. So I need to get cracking on the knit designs!

madder said...

thanks, Connie.
That's right—you have a few months before he's mobile! I can't wait to see what you make for him.

oh my gosh i love these knits and photos and your precious baby girl. i've favorited the set carrie, with the hopes of having some wee someone to knit for someday.

(and they do get much more cooperative, in a few more years!)

madder said...

Thanks! Let's cross our fingers for wee ones in your life.
:)

I'm so glad to get glimpses of more cooperative behavior since I feel like her "terrible twos" started the day after her first birthday.

These pics, and these designs, are just beautiful! I agree with other comments, a cowl for a little one is such a good plan.

thanks, anna!
