PatternLittle Coffee Bean Cardigan by Elizabeth F. Smith

Yarn: Naturally Caron Spa in Misty Taupe and Rose Bisque


My brother and sister-in-law refer to this sweater as my niece’s Pooh sweater, so I made her one inspired by Piglet.   I know Piglet has pink and dark stripes, but I didn’t like that sharp contrast so I chose a gray color instead.

This is a simple pattern to follow.  My only future modification will be to knit the button band as I go instead of picking up stitches later.  It is a better finish for those of us who can’t seem to pick up exactly the right number of stitches for a smooth, even band.
