One last bit of Christmas knitting, this, for the daughter of friends of mine who have been very generous in passing on the baby equipment she has outgrown. This was the least I could do to say thank you.
Sirdar's patterns can be a little bit on the traditional side, but some of them are very pretty. There's something rather fun about being only the second person on ravelry to have had a go at any given pattern too!
I worked the back and two front sections in one piece and joined he shoulder seams with a three needle bind off. The usual mods to cut back on the amount of sewing required at the finishing stage. If I was to make this again, I would probably keep more of an eye on the sleeve length, as they seem fairly long, and as the lace pattern isn't reversible, folding the cuffs back isn't ideal.
The buttons came from Duttons for Buttons in York, chosen by my husband.
