The Sibling Revelry Cardigan is just exactly that, my children, husband, and myself reveling in the perfection and joy of our expanded family. Our oldest with her springy curls, sweet intelligent smile, astute observations on the world and outrage at injustice of all sorts. Our middle gal who cannot decide whether to be a princess or a rock star, or maybe both, all razzle and frazzle, funny jokes and sassy dancing. And finally little guy with his unending love of chickens, trucks and dogs, his toothy sharky smiles and weird wookie howl. Everyday it is a wonder that they are all here and get to love each other fiercely.
This particular design began with a rather special skein of yarn given to me at my Baby celebration with my closest friends. The dark red and browns of the Marte were just lovely and my friend was all smiles when she admitted she just couldn't pass it by because she loved it for me. I combined this treasured skein, with a lush heathered brown, textured cables, 2 color stripes and plush garter stitch. It simply had to be in a huge range of sizes so that the kids could have matching Cardigans, and it needed a hood to balance the rest of the design, and what kid doesn't love hoods? (Okay maybe some kids, but mine love them)
The Sibling Revelry Cardigan is available in sizes 3m (6m, 12m, 18m, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12), it uses worsted weight yarn and 5 buttons. Instructions are given for both girl and boy sided buttonbands and the pattern has charted instructions.
