Classic children’s cardigan and matching winter hat

Baby blue cabled cardiganWhen my daughter was still a tiny little thing I knit her a matching cardigan and hat for the fall and winter.

Being a daring lady, I chose baby blue as the color, ignoring the traditional girly pinks.

The yarn is a super wash wool, very soft and warm.

It really looks gorgeous on her! The hat and sweater were not patterns advertised as a set, but I knit the sweater first, had leftover yarn and decided to find a pattern to make her a hat.

At first I thought I’d knit a cabled hat to match the cabled sweater. Instead, I chose a heart-bedecked colorwork pattern.
