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.

My name is Melina and I am the owner of an independent local yarn shop called Midwest Yarn. I enjoy knitting, crochet, spinning, pattern design, and scrapbooking.
I got started with knitting by teaching myself around age 8 or 9. Since then I've gotten into designing knit items for babies and children and owning my fun little yarn shop (which I also use as a studio).
