f.o. | elwood.


One of my coworkers is having her first child in a few short weeks. I’ve always loved the idea of babies in cardigans usually reserved for grandpas. So, I knit her newest bundle–a boy–an Elwood cardigan by Jenny Wiebe.

I love everything about this pattern–the stripes, the shawl collar created with short row shaping, how quick it knits up.

I am confident this baby will look a stunner; this was knit using two skeins of Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage in the glazed pecan colorway, and one skein in bloomsbury. Even better? It was a complete stash buster, right down to the buttons, which I had on hand and fit perfectly with my color palette.

I can’t wait to see how he looks sporting this sweater. And I’ve already planned a blue and orange Elwood for another bundle on the way. Eventually, I want to make one for my 5 year old nephew in a solid color, too.

Here are my project notes.
