Baby Bambina Cardigan

Posted in Cardigan/Jumpers, Knitting with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 28, 2014 by MontanaDesigns

Hi All,

A client requested that I knit a cardigan as a gift for a friend at her work place as she was going on maternity leave. She liked the pattern I used for her niece so I went with that one. In the photo below I knitted all the main pieces.

This is a true likeness of the colour

I ran out of the original, darker yarn I used so I tried merging it with the yarn you see above (which is called Teddy Bella Bambina, hence the post title), the client didn’t like that. I ended up knitting some pieces twice, it looks nicer this way. Cardy Front   I like looking at the cinched in waist, it’s cute and girly especially with this colour. Cardy Back   Below is a photo of the slip stitch detail on the top half of this cardigan. This is my second time knitting this and I’m pleased that I remember the pattern after a few goes, so I was quicker at making it this time around. Front close Up   I think the simple design of the buttons finish it off nicely, they’re not too bold but they don’t get lost in the colour. I think that’s a nice balance. I have a lot of this yarn left over so I’m thinking about making a pair of mittens ready for winter or rainy summer days. Montana


Babys’ Acid Cardigan

Posted in Sewing with tags , , , , , , on April 18, 2013 by MontanaDesigns

Hi All,

I had some left over Patons Fab DK yarn from my Acid Spring tank, so I decided to make an edgy baby cardigan for a famiy friend.



I moved the button down because my mom told me it’s supposed to be a v neckline!


I still have a ball of this wool left (I over estimated how much wool I needed for my tank) so I’ll be making a lot more with this yarn, I like how different it looks.

There’ll be more to punky yarn projects to come!

Hi All,

I just wanted to share with you some photos that were sent my way.




These are cardigans I knitted a while back. I’m so grateful that I have pics of babys’ in my creations.


Baby “Custard” Hat

Posted in Knitting, Miscellaneous with tags , , , , , , , , on October 17, 2012 by MontanaDesigns

Hi All,

I just sewn up this hat for a client that I’m proud of (my sister X decided on the name custard).


It looks quite woodlandy.


The only problem was the casting on looks a little loose.

I got this out of a book my mom brought in 1997. What knitting projects have you been doing?


Blue Hooded Cardigan

Hi All,

I completed another baby cardigan a week ago and put some cute buttons on
(I’m doing this on my phone so please forgive the quality).



I’m going to do some bootees to match.

Stay busy!
