01. Multi size Classic Baby Cardigans

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, knit 2 stitches together, yarn forward, slip stitches, pass slipped stitches over

Pattern Description:

Instructions for a plain and simple, good old fashioned classic raglan sleeve, round neck or v neck cardigan, suitable for either a reborn or infant baby. The pattern is available in 9 sizes in either 4ply or DK yarn depending on which size you wish you knit. It can be knitted for either a boy or a girl. When knitted, it will fit 10"-22" (25cm-55cm) height, approx 1lb-0/3 month baby or reborn.

You will need between 50g - 100g knitting yarn, 3 buttons for the v neck version or 5 buttons for the round neck version, and 2.75mm-4.5mm knitting needles.

This makes for an ideal first cardigan, and one that can be kept in a baby's first year collection box as a reminder of when they were that small!

This pattern has been designed by myself so it is in UK terminology. It does not follow the usual 'shop bought' format. There are 6 printed pages with clear and easy to follow instructions. All my patterns are tested by independent knitters before they are released, so every effort is made so that they come to you error free.

Although my patterns are strictly protected by copyright, which I ask you to respect, I am more than happy for any items made from my patterns to be sold.


4ply = a standard tension of 28sts and 36 rows to 10cm square over stocking stitch on 3.25mm needles.

DK= a standard tension of 22sts and 30 rows to 10cm square over stocking stitch on 4mm needles
