Pink Sideways Knit Baby Cardigan

September 1, 2017

Here is another little baby sweater from OGE Knitwear Designs.  I love her patterns – nearly seamless being the key feature for me but just so cute!  I wish she was on Instagram (how can she not be!)  so I could tag her, but she just doesn’t have an account.  This little sweater was a really unusual construction – it’s knit sideways and then you just sew up the sleeves.

There are two stitch versions you can do and I chose the Hurdle stitch.  This was a fun pattern and created a really interesting texture.

I used a Superwash Merino yarn from Cascade Yarn.  It’s nice for a baby project, so you can just throw the sweater in the washer and dryer and not worry about it.  And the merino is super soft for babies.

The pattern maker does a great job writing her patterns – they are clear and have photos showing you exactly how to do this unusual construction.  She makes it easy for you.

Knitting this on circular needles made it easy to pick up and put down and the project, since there was a lot going on here with stitches on holders for some of the construction.

I added two sparkly buttons, which made me very happy!
