A baby's cardigan

I was asked to knit some cardigans for a soon to arrive babe, and from a list of suggested patterns, this was one of the ones selected. The pattern is Debbie Bliss' jacket with moss stitch bands from the book baby knits for beginners, and it's a pattern I have adored since Linda's kind Grandma knitted it for Patch before he was born. The most adorable teeny cardigan in a camel colour... Anyway, I was rather happy to have a reason to revisit this pattern.

The cardigan is made with the delicious Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino, this time in an oh so pretty light pink. The 3-6 month size used three balls of wool. The buttons are from Great Gran's tin. And really nothing more to say about this sweet cardigan - it is great for beginners so anyone can have a go, it uses dreamy wool... and it includes some moss stitch. Love it


  1. Absolutely lovely in every way! Lucky baby... And what a perfect yarn to use for this sweet project!
