Product Information

Baby Cakes 8ply knitting pattern from lisafdesign.

Kennedy is a crew neck, drop sleeve textured sweater, teamed up with a striped beanie.  Moss stitch, triangles and garter stripes create interesting textures for this 8ply pattern. Construction is knitted flat in pieces and sewn together using mattress stitch.

Like many of Lisa's patterns, the hat has two construction options to knit flat on straight needles or in the round on double pointed needles (DPNs).

Keep the look classic by choosing pure NZ wools in undyed natural shades such as Wild Earth Yarns Naturals 8ply (shown in Walnut with a small amount of Cream).

Five sizes for Sweater in ages: newborn-3 (3-6, 6-9, 9-12, 12-18) months
Four sizes for Hat in ages: newborn-3 (3-6, 6-9, 9-18) months


Yarn: Main Colour 3 (4, 5, 5, 6) balls of Wild Earth Yarns Naturals 8ply Wool (based on 104 metres per 50 gram ball) and Contrast Colour - a small amount of another contrasting colour or approx. total of 312 (416, 520, 520, 648) metres of equivalent 8ply wool yarn

Needles: 4mm and 3.25mm straight needles and DPNs in both sizes
Notions: Stitch holder and 1 button

Gauge: 22 sts and 30 rows to 10cm square over stocking stitch knitted on 4mm needles. Correct tension is Essential. Be sure to check your tension matches this pattern's stated gauge to ensure it will fit and you have the correct amount of yarn.  If your swatch has less stitches to the 10cm, your tension is too loose so use smaller needles.  If your swatch has more stitches to the 10cm, your tension is too firm so use larger needles.
