Pattern Description:

This little set is perfect for a shower gift, and it's a great way to try out a new stitch. The body front and back are made using this deceptively easy honeycomb cable stitch. It looks so complicated but has just a 4 row repeat and is very easy to learn. The sleeves and hat are made using the seed stitch for a more interesting texture.

The cardigan is made all in on piece with two seams. The seams begin at the wrist, go down the underside of the sleeve, and down the side of the body to the waist band. The hat is also made in one piece, folded in half, and there is a seam down each side.

The size given is for Newborn/0-3 months, but you can easily add stitches and rows to make it the exact size that you need.


Honeycomb Stitch - 17 stitches and 18 rows = 3 square inches

Seed Stitch - 12 stitches and 24 rows = 3 square inches

You Will Also Need:

  • Tapestry Needle

Suggested yarn:

200 yards of Worsted weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Red Heart Soft
