Robert’s CARdigan

The front - still needs buttons, though.

Get it?  CAR-digan???  (I crack myself up sometimes, I tell ya.)  😉

This is for my “niece’s” (she’s designated me honorary auntie, so I guess that makes her my honorary niece, doesn’t it?) 3-year old son, Robert.

She actually asked me for this a while ago.  But it was still pretty warm then, so I didn’t think it was something that needed to be done right away.

But it’s started getting cold here already.  Hell, I’m sitting here in a long-sleeved tee with a sweater poncho (hard to explain, but it’s a sweater that’s made to LOOK like a poncho) and jeans, and I’m still chilly.

So I figured it was a good time to get it done.  Besides, I’ve got a huge list of things that I would like to get done as Christmas presents, so I figured I’d better get this done and out of the way.

It only took me 3 days to do – I started it on Tuesday and finished it today.  Actually, I probably could have gotten it finished yesterday, but yesterday was a bad day, so I didn’t get as much work done on it as I would have liked.

I didn’t use a pattern for this – it’s all off the top of my head.  I’m considering writing it up as a free pattern, but haven’t decided yet.  If you’d like to see a free pattern for this, leave me a comment.  I’ll be happy to do it if there’s any interest in it!
