New Listing on Etsy

Multi-Colored Handknit Baby Cardigan
I've just added a new baby sweater to my Etsy shop.  I'm really excited about this sweater.  I knit it in a style of knitting called "mosaic knitting," which is a type of colorwork that results in something of a geometric pattern.  Sweaters knit this way tend to be a little bit thicker than others, so this is definitely a fall/winter sweater (perfect for a spring baby shower). 

I'm particularly pleased with the color palette.  I love the way the lime green and blue balance the red.  So often red ends up being the dominant color when it's combined with other colors, but I feel like all four of the colors are equally prominent in this sweater.  Plus, I like that it incorporates stripes--which everyone knows are my favorite--but with a twist.

For more information about mosaic knitting, check out this great Knitty article.
