Watermelon baby cardigan

    This is a fun and quick little cardigan. I changed the body shaping a little bit by adding short rows in the back and by making gradual increases to the body instead of all at once. Also I cast on 3 stitches under each arm after casting off for the sleeve caps. Good grief! I can't believe that I put the buttons and button holes on the wrong side for a girl.

    I used the yarn recommended by the designer - James Brett Cotton on DK. The yarn is nice, but had some knots which are annoying.
    The mother of pearl buttons were purchased on this site and are very pretty.

    Needles & Hooks

    • Circular 3.75mm (US 5)


    • Tapestry Needle
    • Buttons


    Notes: The pattern has one size only (0 to 3 months), but I made it slightly larger to fit a baby 3 to 6 months. It still used just under one ball of green yarn.
