My first knitted cardigan for baby Alex.

My first knitted cardigan for our baby grandson. I have knitted cardigans and hats for bears but I haven’t knitted baby clothes since our youngest was a baby 13 years ago. It took me four months to complete, fitting time in between making the bears and school holidays. My grand daughter said “grandma it has lots of holes in it” I said that is the pattern!
