This is a sweet and simple knit for any knitter (and really great if you are trying to finish a garment before a baby is born!). It's an adorable curved cardigan with options for long/short sleeves that has a nice, ruffly edge. I mean, anything topped off with a beret is a winner right?
Warning: do not be fooled, this pattern has an age range of 0-7 years - so it isn't just for babies.
These patterns are knitted in King Cole Cherish DK (the variegated yarn) and King Cole Cherished DK (the solid sister of Cherish), which are a super soft acrylic blend made just for babies. I would also recommend looking at using King Cole Finesse DK, it is a gorgeous yarn with cotton and silk that is soft, washable, super smooth and drapey.
These patterns are knitted on 3.25 and 4mm straight needles and you will need some handsome buttons to finish depending on your garment choice.
