Garter Stripes Cardigan

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit

Pattern Description:

I made this design because I was looking for a simple yoke cardigan, but could not find one for babies. Of course, I was looking to make something for my son, something that he could be comfortable in and still be oh-so-adorable.

This is a great yoke cardigan for babies and toddlers up to 24 months. In fact the 18 to 24 months size will even fit toddlers that wear a 2T size. The circular yoke is worked back and forth. The stripes are optional, but add a little bit of texture.
