When I knit my first Young Einstein cardigan back in August, my friend Amy saw the picture on Instagram and asked if she could commission me to make one for her friend’s baby. Not only did I immensely enjoy knitting the first one, but the pattern’s author, Julia Stanfield, had made the Young Einstein pattern license free for small scale sales, so of course, I said yes!
I have to hand it to Amy for her yarn choice because in my experience with commissions people tend to select boring colors and schemes. I had directed Amy to the Tosh DK selections at Jimmy Beans Wool, and just look at the color she picked! The colorway is called Yoko, and the buttons are from Purl Soho.
I hope Amy’s friend loves this cardigan as much as I do. As my husband said, “Give that baby a newspaper to read!” Because the cardigan is so intellectual-looking. ;o)
