Finished Project: Tiny Rocky Coast

One of the few things Kate has knit for herself in the past year has been a Rocky Coast Cardigan from the continually popular Coastal Knits by Hannah Fettig + Alana Dakos. Knitting the sweater coincided with her pregnancy with her first baby, a daughter Charlie, born in March of 2012.

Not wanting to fulfill the old adage regarding the cobbler and his sadly shoeless children, Kate made sure Charlie has some good knitwear made by her momma to keep her warm.

Now that Charlie is - gasp! - an almost 7 month old, the Tiny Rocky Coast by Hannah Fettig, a baby and children sized version of the Rocky Coast Cardigan from the Coastal Knits follow up, Coastal Kids, seemed like a perfect addition to her wardrobe.

Knit out of Canopy Fingering in Guava, the finished sweater is both cute and functional, and knit from the top down in one piece, it is the perfect quick project for busy mommas.

We think Charlie likes it, too!
