to maternity ... and beyond

Rockefeller Sweater by Wenlan Chia (this one was knit by Cirilia Rose)
Knits for the expectant mother. What a knitter should knit when a knitter is expecting. Something like that. I've been scouring Ravelry for a project that I could wear through maternity ... and beyond. Because if you're going to knit something, it had better last longer than one season. Here are some versatile cardigan patterns I've been digging that would be super cute on anyone.

 Alaska by Jo Storie

Danforth Pullover by Pam Allen

Chloe Cardigan by Jo Storie

 Solstice Cardigan by Cecily Glowik MacDonald

Anhinga by Norah Gaughan


  1. oooh, I love that Chloe Cardigan! I could definitely see you in the last one.
    I'm just doing an afghan because I wouldn't have a cardigan/sweater done before I would want to wear it, lol. (slow knitter)
    Happy knitting!

  2. Anhinga's a good one! I have to seam mine before fall officially sets in. I really like the first one too!

  3. I am a terrible friend. TERRIBLE. I am so sorry it took me approximately 1.5 months to realize you are preggo. So, a major CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!! is in order! I can't wait to see the little one! EEEEE!

  4. Wow, those are all so cute!!! I would pay you one million dollars for the solstice cardigan, just saying. And I think you are having a girl...or a boy...I haven't decided yet. :) I think I am having a lemur (I always wanted one of those. Healthy, of course, but always a lemur)

  5. I LOVE the solstice cardigan...thanks for sharing!

  6. I LOOOOVE the knit or not to knit ??!!!

  7. omg can I wear these even though I'm not pregnant? I love them!


Thanks for stopping by and saying hi!
