Such a cute cardigan I knit it twice!
I knit the grey cardigan during the summer as a present for my new little nephew.
Baby N has older brothers and a sister so he is not short of hand me downs. I wanted to make something a little bit different so fell in love with the Elevenses pattern by Froginette Knitting.
Its little collar and tiny pockets ❤️.
I chose to knit it in a grey Aran weight Drops Big Merino, which is lovely and soft, plus the wool is machine washable, which is perfect for a baby garment.
The 3 month old size actually knit up quite quickly and if you worked on it non-stop you could have it done in several days.
The buttons are from my button box, it’s great to have this stash. My youngest daughter used to love sorting through the buttons when she was little and she really enjoyed rooting through it again for these cardigan buttons.
Fast forward to last month when his Mum asked if I could knit him another cardigan for the festive season, this time in red.
This was knit in the 6 month old size
Baby knits are so satisfying to make as they are made quickly and you can see real progress after a couple of hours knitting.
Do any of you have a tried and tested baby knit pattern you go back to? I’d love to hear.
If you have a baby in your life and need a quick knit for Christmas then this would be the perfect knit for you.
