Pattern Details

If there is only one cardigan you want to knit for baby I recommend this one. It is one of my most treasured designs.It is simple and beautiful,a true classic in pattern and shape and can be teamed with just about any outfit you can think of. It fits really well and looks adorable on both boys and girls. Moss stitch has an amazing ability to retain its shape and spring back after washing with a lovely supple feel to it.It is light and warm at the same time. I especially like it in a natural wool colour but red or blue or even black would look just as good. Knit it as a gift for a new baby,guaranteed to please the most discerning recipient! The pattern comes in 4 sizes: Newborn, 3 months, 6 months and 12 months. You require fingering weight wool and 3.25mm or US3 knitting needles. It is an easy to knit pattern with minimal shaping involved. Pattern is copyrighted and intended for personal use only.

I am a fashion/ textile designer and mother of six children. Over time I have designed and knitted as well as sewn hundreds of items of baby and childrens clothing. I am a designer specializing in innovative and practical children's wear that is timeless and understated. Sewing, knitting and designing for babies and children gives me special joy and freedom to be playful, nostalgic and quirky. I prefer natural yarns and fabrics as these don't just feel and look good, they also perform very well when used for children's garments. My belief is that children's wear should be fun, practical and comfortable as well as easy to care for. I am a highly creative person and there are a lot of artists, designers as well as dressmakers in my family and my great grandfather who was as a sewing machine engineer... Nothing quite compares with making something for your little one yourself. I encourage everyone with the urge to have a go. It's fun and a lot easier than you think! One of my daughters knitted a very simple blanket for her baby brother when she was 10 years old. It is by no means perfect but it has become a very special prized possession that both her and her brother will cherish for years to come. Empower yourself and have a go!
