Last night I put the finishing touches on this little cardigan that I made for my cousin’s soon to be baby. She’s waiting until the birth to find out the sex of her baby, so I went with a gender neutral pattern and color.
I knit the 6-12 month size, but added more raglan increases since my gauge was off. The pattern calls for 15 sts and 20 rows = 4 inches. I was getting 18.5 sts and 24 rows = 4 inches.
The yarn is Malabrigo Rios in “Plomo.” I used about 1.2 hanks to complete the sweater. I’m using the rest to make a matching hat.
I hope this sweater fits the baby come fall! He/she is due in August, so I was aiming for something that’ll fit when the baby is past the newborn stage.
