My colleague and his wife had a baby this fall. I decided I definitely wanted to make them something. I had some leftover Harrisville Designs Shear from the Morchella Cardigan (which believe it or not I’m going to knit another one with lost of ease) and it was a perfect match for a sweet pattern like this mostly open front cardigan Norwegian Fir. Plus, it was just the right color and amount of wooly softness.
This sweater was so fun to know. I love that the raglan increases at the yoke are created in the lace pattern–smart and beautiful. This was a breeze–I finished it in just a day or two (gosh, baby stuff! so great!) and knit it in the 6-12 months size so they can get good use out of it for this long, long winter ahead.
What are some other great, satisfying, quick knits for babies? My ravelry notes here.
