Ooooooh, baby love, my baby love


I love a circle punch, I have many, all sizes and it's amazing what you can create with them. One of the easiest is the baby pram. For this card I used a 6.5cm circle cut in half for the main body of the pram and a 2.5cm and 3cm (approx) for the wheels.


No circle punches were used on this baby boy card but I can give you instructions for the knitted jumper. Using 2.75 metric needles and four ply wool, cast on 13 stitches and knit four row in rib. Then knit 6 rows in stocking stitch, I always tend to knit the first and the last stitch on each pearl row, it gives a better edge. Cast on four stitches, knit to end. Cast on another four stitches, pearl to end. Work approximately another four rows in stocking stitch and then finish off somewhere in the middle. Transfer stitches onto cocktail sticks.

Have fun.

Thanks for looking.
