A friend of mine hasn’t knitted in years and she was having a sort out f her knitting things. She gave me a bag of different wools to use up and in the bottom of the bag was a partially knitted cardigan/jacket. Some of the measurements were a bit out but I managed to pick up the stitches on the neckline and knit a hood, then picked up and formed a ribbed border down the front and round the hood edge. It didn’t turn out too bad and it fits my neighbours little girl for a garden or park jacket. I don’t know what pattern she used, and i believe that most of it was chunky wool but didn’t have any that matched so i used blue Aran for the hood and edges.
Needles & Hooks

Notes: It fits my neighbours 2 1/2 year old, but not sure on the size she planned it to be, as I haven’t got the pattern.
