When he was very little, my son could not pronounce ‘bacon’ properly so it’s always been ‘macon’ in our house. His cousins cardigan is made of cotton odds and ends. I suppose together the colours do look a bit like delicious crispy bacon, but it’s a perfect top for a little girl. The sleeves are cropped and the body has a nice, swingy shape. Stocking stitch stripes make the most of any leftover yarn you have.
