I started this little girls top down cardi last spring. I think I finished in about 2 weeks, but I couldn't figure out to do any of the embroidery no matter how many videos I watched.
So, I decided to sew some purple and lavender flowers decorations on the sweater. This was a free pattern from Ravelry called the Daisy Chain Cardi: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/daisy-chain-4
It was a pretty easy knit, but if I were to knit it again, I'd knit the button-band a little wider.
My GD is thrilled with the color and the sweater. She's hasn't taken it off since putting on. I think that if it had long sleeves she wear it with her other long sleeved tops.
