A while ago I discovered this charming heartwarmer pattern. I have always been a fan of shawls and heartwarmers. They are so cozy and old-fashioned. There is nothing quite like wearing a shawl while drinking a cup of tea on a cool autumnal morning!
The idea of knitting a heartwarmer for my little darling was definitely appealing to me, as a shawl was not really practical. The little side button added extra charm to the piece, and heartwarmers always make me think of "Little Women". : )
My mom gave me these sweet little wooden button with etched flowers. I thought they were the perfect choice!
The pattern was very easy to follow, and offers two sizes. However with the adjustable buttons you could probably adjust the sizing even further. Mostly the pattern is comprised of a garter stitch and easy increases, excepting some subtle patterning a few rows before finishing.
Jemimah is enjoying her little heartwarmer, and it certainly warms my heart to see her wearing it over her calico dress! In fact I enjoyed this pattern so much I have another on my needles right now in a soft white alpaca blend.
