Rufus Textured Cardigan »
InstructionsSince the pattern is very easy to memorize and the instructions are simple to follow, there aren't really any additional things I'd like to say about the actual construction. I chose my yarn first and had to change needle size to the correct gauge. Remember to always sew buttons very securely for any baby item!
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Traditional, Casual, Retro / Vintage, Cute, Classic
Sensations Cuddle #3 yarn. I don't remember what needle size, I only remember I needed to change the needle size to gauge.
What was your inspiration?
I wanted to try something more advanced for my best friend's first baby. Since this is my very first nephew, I wanted to make something special! I also wanted it to be a practical item they can use for any occasion, even if it's just going to the grocery store.
What are you most proud of?
This was my very first knitted sweater!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
As with any baby item, making it a little too big is better than too small. They will just keep growing! Also, softness and breathability of the yarn is very important. Again, remember to sew buttons very securely for any baby item!
