Just finished off this vintage crochet baby cardigan for my little niece.

Here’s the original pattern (Free Vintage Crochet) and photo that goes along with the pattern. 

A bit like ribbon embroidery, I find that vintage crochet patterns can err on the side of being a bit old-fashioned, but I really loved the unusual shape of this cardigan. To avoid my lil gal looking like she came out of a Victorian novel I still updated the look by shortening the sleeves and choosing a bold fuchsia purple trim and a shell button to finish it off.

Hope you like it!
