I have a new obsession of late: mini versions of great sweaters. I’m not sure why but I really love dressing Hunter as a mini-adult rather than in baby clothes. This is not a style for all (and I have gotten a few comments to that effect) but I love it! So you can imagine my excitement when I cam across the Mini Manu cardigan!

I’ve been thinking about the Manu cardigan ever since I saw KT’s excellent felted tweed version while ago. The pleats, pockets, and i-cord bind are all pretty feminine features, perfect for my bald little baby who is always mistaken for a boy. I had also been eyeing up a couple of skeins of Madelinetosh DK in the colour way Cousteau so it was a match made in heaven!

My Mini Manu took 2 skeins and is the 18 month size. It is blocked and ready to go, as soon as Hunter grows a little more!  If you are loving the mini you might also want to try the Tiny Tea Leaves and the February Baby sweater (I know the baby one came first but there are both baby and adult versions in the world).

    Why do people think they have a right to comment on other peoples fashion choices. I really think that if they don’t like something they should just WALK AWAY, keeping their opinions to themselves, unless it’s to say, WOW, what a beautiful sweater, did you make it. But hey that’s just me.
    Luv the Mini’s. Your work is fabulous.
    Just a thought, if you crochet, make a matching flower headband, no mistaking her for a baby girl then, or how about a mini crochet flower button or bow at the top attachment.
    I only say this as my daughter was as bald as a billiard ball until she was almost two, partly as her hair was so blonde she looked bald. So we were always looking for a feminine touch.

    The crochet baby brooch will have to be the accessory of all baldy baby girls! Thanks for the sage advice!
