There Is Only This Little Left

I only had this little yarn left from what I bought last summer to make a cardigan for Lumi (a friend’s baby).

Leftover yarn

Only that little yarn from three skeins of Phildar Quiétude in Opera (red), and two in Black. However, to do this, I had to knit something else than a baby cardigan. I have two lovely finished objects for you:

Cardigan for Lumi


  • Pattern: Loosely based on Peach Blossom Baby Jacket
  • Yarn: Phildar Quiétude, 2.25 skeins in Opera, and 1.25 in Black.
  • Needles: 4.5mm (100cm) Circular Addi Natura, and 4.5mm Mei-Mei DPNs
  • Gauge: 20 st and 24 rows = 10 cm square
  • Size: Hopefully, to fit Lumi ;-)


  1. I made two more sets of raglan increases, to make the cardi a bit bigger. Lumi is a big baby!
  2. I added a black stripe over the sleeves and the body, because I wanted to.
  3. Finally, I made a button band with button holes, and sewed in five cute little buttons I found at Veritas
Hat for Laura


  • Pattern: My own, slightly based on the hat from this baby bee hat and booties set. I will be writing this pattern out in brief.
  • Yarn: Phildar Quiétude, 0.75 skeins in Opera, and 0.75 in Black.
  • Needles:4.5mm Mei-Mei DPNs
  • Gauge: 20 st and 24 rows = 10 cm square
  • Size: Adult head
Hat take two

On other news, there are only four days left till I fly again to Belgium. And I’ll be staying for over a month, coming back to Spain to take a couple tests, and then return. Hopefully, I’ll be studying for these tests, learning dutch, and working. Busy bee!
