Modular Step Baby Cardigan, 4ply version

I've reknit the Modular Baby Cardigan using Austermann Step 4 Ply.   I'm really pleased with it turned out and was also inspired to create some matching socks.   The smallest size 0-6mths together with the socks used up all but 10g of the ball of yarn.    I  need to play around with sleeve widths and perhaps narrow them a little for the light fabric.  But I'm pretty pleased with what I've got so far.

Knit on 4mm needles, it's a quick knit and really satisfying.   The socks used about 7g of yarn each in the smallest size.  How cute are they?   It's made in colour 005, I think we have 12 of the Step yarn to choose from and the pattern will be free with a purchase of Step.

Cashmere Cosy Pattern

My latest design in Knit Now Magazine is the Cashmere Cosy hat.   It's on page 38 and modelled by a lovely chap from their office.    Didn't he do a great job?

Anyway, I'm making another.  Why?  Because, Tim (the lovely model) loves the original hat so much, he wants to keep it.   How could I refuse such a compliment?   The next version of the hat is using some Austermann Merino Silk, I'll make one for Hubby later in the year using the Alpaca Silk, probably in black.

I do love both yarns, but was really keen to try the Merino Silk as it's all natural fibres and while being supremely soft, is really hard wearing.    I'll post photos as I get going so you can see the texture of the yarn.

Hope you like the latest pattern, do send in pics of any you make!   Thanks to Practical Publishing Ltd for the use of the photography.
