two little coffee beans

Two little cardigans from Elizabeth Smith's Little Coffee Bean pattern. This is such a well-written pattern. I love that it's completely seam-free, since it's all knit in the round, even the sleeves. I'm sure I'll be coming back to it.

I learned magic loop knitting to avoid purchasing double pointed needles for the sleeves. It was delightful to find that the technique is easy peasy!


Just using up stash yarn and buttons with this one. I think the stripes are fun, don't you? My gauge was off so it ended up disproportionately wide, but still wearable.



Okay, so the birdie is a little wonky. I still think he's pretty cheery. Yarn was Bernat Cottontots solids-- same as Matthew's sweater.

Stop it with these sweaters. You're killing me. The green and white striped --- love love love.
