Baby Girl Raglan SweaterMarch 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.
