The Calendula Baby Cardigan Knitting Pattern is a lovely model that suits both boys and girls.
This baby coat is worked with raglan shaping from the top down in stocking stitch. Smaller needles are used on the ribs (neck band, bottom, buttons/buttonholes band) for a better fit. In this pattern the sleeves are knitted flat, but if are a more experienced knitter you can easily work them in the round using double pointed needles.
The buttons/buttonholes band is picked up and worked after the body is knitted.
Stitch counting charts for the raglan increases are given for each size in the pattern.
Instructions for the Duplicate Stitch (Knitting embroidery) are given in the pattern.
FULL INSTRUCTIONS ARE GIVEN IN THE PATTERN.
The step by step instructions have lots of photos and size colour codes to help you through your knitting project.
