Itty bitty cardi for a special little girl

A friend of mine asked me to make a cardi for her friend's newest foster child... an itty bitty baby girl who wasn't quite 4lb when they brought her home. She is such a pretty little dot that I wanted something really special, so I worked hard on sizing down a cute ballerina style cardigan from 'Cool Knits for Kids' (Gunn & Macdonald). The pattern was for 3-6m, in a worsted-weight yarn. I knit it up in lilac 4-ply, on 3.25 needles.

I finished it with a little pink butterfly button; ribbons look beautiful but not really practical on a teeny tiby baby.
