Spearmint Candy Cardigan


Although this little jacket started out with a completely  different pattern, I really like the end result.  I had some medium sized balls of scrap yarn, left over from other projects. One was a pink baby sport weight yarn and the other was Bernat Baby Jacquards in Spearmint Candy Print.  It looked like enough yarn to make the pattern I selected, but when I ran out of yarn, I had none left for the sleeves.  So I decided to make the whole thing out of granny squares, and had enough yarn, with a small ball of sport weight white, to make the baby sweater with short sleeves.  Luckily, I had started with the 3 month size. :)

I like the idea of this cardigan very much. I now have a reason to store the baby yarn (all leftovers from times when the boys were babies) a bit longer.
