Lavender Ruffles (Quick Whipped Up Ta-dah)

I have been a bit lazy around the house this week, moping I think as my boys have gone off to school for the first time in over 5 years and left me by myself.

 I have been reading the Hunger Games series and of course thrown in a little knitting, cooking and crochet in between.   In utter boredom a couple of days ago, I decided to unravel a frogged jumper and decided to use some of the wool to whip up something quickly. I ended up finally making the ruffled Hexagon Baby Cardigan from Yarn Tails, in its full glory.

I have made several of these little cardigan's before but never added the ruffles. It really does jazz it up a bit though, I must say. The wool is Patons Tasman (an acrylic blend) in white and purple. I used a 5mm hook and 3 heart buttons to finish it off. 

Please do excuse the lighting in the pictures. I had a bit of a hard time trying to get the colour right then finally gave up. So although it looks dark in some and blue in some, it is actually more of a lavender colour in truth.

I think it turned out pretty cute in the end and it was so quick and easy to whip up! Not sure yet who I am going to give it too. It was not one of the projects on my long to do list. Woops!

Ah, but its always nice to whip up a something just because you feel like it. Don't you think?

Love and Light to All,

Hugs and smoochies xoxoxoxo


  1. Very cute, the ruffle and buttons make it really special. I love it. I love making baby things.

  2. Ooo it is so sweet! I love the ruffles...they finish it off perfectly :)x

  3. Cuute, love the ruffles! I spent the morning making a valentines heart garland kind of thing, instead of cleaning the house! Now I have lots of colourful hearts and my floor is still dirty! Oh my! But we had tons of snow today, so it will get dirty here anyway!

  4. It's very cute and so neat on its construction. Do you have twin boys then? :O)

    1. No they are 17 months apart. But both have been homeschooled for the past 5 1/2 years. So going off to highschool in years 7 & 9 is a HUGE step for all of us.
