Baby Girl Raglan Sweater

March 1, 2017

Another baby knit finish.  This time it was a pattern from OGE Knitwear Designs.  I loved the textured border on this pattern.  And I really love one button cardigans.  There’s something sweet about them.  I had fun choosing the button – it’s a sparkly pink bit of bling that finished the sweater just right.

Most of the sweater is done in a twisted stockinette stitch that I loved.  It’s just a nice touch and a little more special than regular stockinette.

This sweater is knitted flat, so there is seaming, not my favorite thing.  I blocked each panel and sleeve first before sewing the pieces together – it’s much easier and neater to seam blocked pieces together, since it gets rid of a lot of the curl of unblocked pieces.

I used a super soft Superwash extra fine Merino wool from Cascade Yarns in a sport weight.  It’s nice to use superwash yarns for baby items, so they can be thrown in the washer.

This was a nice little pattern.  Check out OGE Knitwear Designs – the designer has so many cute baby patterns.
