After seeing friend of mine make the Celia Cardigan by Karen Semo for her daughter, I thought I would make one for H. It seemed like it would be a great transition sweater. I purchased 4 hanks of Cascade Yarns 128 Chunky Solid in summer pool on sale. Since the yarn is so chunky, I was able to knit the cardigan in just a few nights while watching the Olympics. This sweater could have easily been knit all in one piece to minimize the seaming.
Sorry for the poor quality of the photo. The sleeves are the same length, but they look slightly off in this photo. I took picture with my phone and will try to take a few more over the weekend. H. has been too busy having a blast with my visiting mother-in-law to try on the sweater.
In all honesty, I am not a huge fan of the puffy sleeves. They just look so out of proportion with the chunky yarn. I think making sweater with puffy sleeves using a worsted or even fingering weight yarn would have been ideal.
I may try and make this again without the sleeves, and just pick up some stitches around the arm holes to make it a nice vest.
