Offset Wraplan

All of a sudden Olive seems to have grown and is needing new clothes. I've had some Rowan cotton glace in my stash for ages in the most perfect aqua colour. After seeing these two cardigans I knew I needed to make one.
I love the feel of a cotton cardigan and it will be fantastic all summer, but it shows every little bit of my uneven knitting and it twisted quite a lot while I knitted it.
It did seem a little out of proportion while I knitted it, but it wasn't until the end I realized the measurements for the body were meant to be taken from under the arm not the top where you cast on. It pays to not only read the instructions but also look at the schematic. Oh well, it is big around the body and  bit short, but wearable and will be great over dresses as it gets warmer.

I want to smoosh those cheeks! She really looks older in this pic, I can tell she'd be growing out of all her clothes!
