A sweet little baby cardigan for that special little baby in your life. Worked back and forth from the top down in one piece, with i-cord neck and hem finishing and either a cute tie or loop and button closure. As a finishing touch an applique of either the Pi symbol, a rabbit or a sheep is applied with duplicate stitching. If desired, the picture could also be made using intarsia instead.
This pattern is suitable for the beginning knitter, who is ready to learn new finishing techniques. Techniques used consist of provisional cast on, i-cord bind off, regular i-cord and duplicate stitching. For duplicate stitching is a photo tutorial included. Stitches used: K, P, Kfb, slipped stitches.
*This pattern has been professionally tech edited.*
20 stitches and 26 rows = 4 inches in stockinette
|Girls, Boys, Infant/Baby|

Having a background in Industrial Design Engineering, you can say that I always had a knack for design. When I taught myself to knit and discovered the possibilities of sticks & twine, the gates for ideas to translate into knitted fabric were opened.
Everything that catches my attention can be the source of a new design idea, being it strong lines and shapes or a distinct lace pattern. Whatever the idea may be, I find it important to make the finished pattern as accessible as possible for knitters of varying skill levels.
