FO - Baby Hooded Cardi

Here's the front:

Here's the back.

Of course, we're our own worst critics. I just hate how the seams showed on the finished item. If you ask J, he says it looks great.

I knitted this using the 2 year instructions. It looks more like an 18T to me. I attribute this to using a sport weight yarn (verses using the boucle).

I also had to go up on the button size. The pattern said to use 5/16" and I ended up with 9/16". The 5/16" buttons just weren't keeping the cardi closed.

The final recipient is VERY happy with the final result - which makes me happy, too. I've decided to make a custom baby item for my daughter's school auction since this has been received so well.
