Basic Skills Necessary:

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

Pattern Description:

Instructions for a reborn or baby plain cardigan with a patterned border. The pattern is available in 9 sizes in either 4ply or DK yarn depending on which size you wish you knit. The cardigan is a raglan design with the 2 coloured slip stitch border knitted separately. 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.

Alternatively, the cardigan can be knitted in a solid colour.

You will need between 50g - 100g main coloured knitting yarn, and 10g of contrast yarn, 3 buttons, 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 4 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.


DK = 22sts and 30 rows to 10cm square over stocking stitch on 4mm needles or
4ply = 28sts and 36 rows to 10cm square over stocking stitch on 3.25mm needles

Sizing / Finished Measurements:
