Work-in-Progress: Chloe’s cardigan

I always have several projects on the go, but the one I hope to finish the quickest is this bolero cardigan for Chloe Bean:

It is a King Cole pattern, from Baby Book 2. The yarn is Stylecraft Special DK in Duck Egg. The needles are size 4mm, and they were my Granny’s.

So far, I have completed the two front pieces:


I’m really enjoying this at the moment, but the edging looks tough – I will have to pick up over 200 stitches!

And just as an aside…am I the only person who writes out the pattern? For me, it means I can keep track of the size and what to do next without writing on the pattern itself.
