This classic baby cardigan knitting pattern is a cosy knit made with DK yarn.
The pdf pattern comes in sizes for babies and toddlers and is worked from the bottom up. Starting with the full width of the body and then dividing at the sleeves to work the upper front and back pieces separately. The cardigan is finished off by knitting the neck and button bands. Stitches are picked up at the arm holes to work the sleeves from shoulder to wrist. The construction of the cardigan means minimal seaming is required.
The pattern features step-by-step photo to help with some of the sections of the pattern.
