Pattern Name: LGB Studio Aster Cardigan
Made By: Dani
Size: 18 Months and 4T
The Aster cardigan was so adorable I knew instantly I wanted to make them for my girls. I love the vintage design of the Peter Pan collar and since its made for knits I knew it would be comfortable for my kids.
I chose these awesome jersey knits from Art Gallery fabrics because I loved the childlike feel they had without being overly kitschy. I’m glad my daughter liked theses fabrics too. Usually if it’s not Daniel Tiger or My little pony, she’s not into it. Luckily my one year old can’t argue with me yet 😂. These cardigans fit my kids perfectly based on the size chart, and sewed up pretty quick too! I made two of them in about 3 hours. One of my favorite parts was the sleeve cuffs. I just love that little extra design element that makes this pattern feel more unique. In the future, I will definitely make these again for my girls, maybe out of a ponte or a double knit for colder weather. I may possibly lengthen the sleeves to wrist length too.
I’ve already made the Aster twice, and have plans for many more stacking up on my sewing table. It’s so cute! (kinda wish it was my size. Ha!) It also goes very well with the Wiksten Bloomers too! The set would make a perfect Baby Shower gift!
