Elegant white cardigan for baby

DSC_0005

This simple little white cardigan was chosen by my daughter for me to make for her baby. I had no idea why she chose this pattern. I had lots of different patterns for her to choose from? Cables and colour work and lace and hoods and collars and coats. But she chose this.

But she was right. The simplicity of this little pattern becomes it’s elegance. The little sparkly buttons add to the daintiness of the circular yoke, along with the garter ridges.

This pattern is a free pattern available on Ravelry and comes in 3 to 6 months and 9 to 12 months sizes. I made the 9 to 12 month for our 9 month old baby and it was a wee bit big. But her mum still had her wearing it with the sleeves rolled up. She is now 12 months old and the cardigan fits her perfectly and will do for another few months.

So this elegant little baby cardigan pattern knitted in 4ply has now been made twice. My daughter’s friend saw it and wanted one for her baby too. That is why I love my girls choosing their own patterns.

People who provide patterns for free are so wonderful. Thank you to Gralina Frie for this simple little cardigan for baby.
