Addie's "In Threes" Cardigan

I am a HUGE fan of Ravelry and love going online and looking at all the different patterns that you can either purchase or get for free.  There are literally thousands of choices for anything you would ever want to knit or crochet.  One pattern that I fell in love with was a pattern written by a woman expecting her third girl...hence the name of her sweater "In Threes:  A Baby Cardigan."  This is the second one I have made.  Addie wore a red one for Christmas.  It is the easiest knit ever.  I did this in just a couple days and it turned out adorable.  I covered my own buttons with a cute pink, blue and white check fabric.  I may still add a crocheted flower to it but haven't crocheted it yet.  It is the prettiest bubble gum pink color and will look adorable with a pair of jeans.  I may even make her a little ruffled skirt to go with it.   

Here is a close-up of the little checked buttons!  I love how they look on it.

The back hangs very nicely with the yoked top.  I wouldn't mind one in an adult size.  Unfortunately it would take much longer than a couple days to do!!!!

Now that it's done and blocked I need to go on Ravelry and pick my next project!!!

Thanks ladies! I feel kind of bad because I've only made Blake one sweater!! It's just easier and more fun to knit for girls! At least he gets some hats I've made!!!
