Baby Cakes 8ply knitting pattern from lisafdesign.
The Poppy Cardigan has a pretty scalloped edge with 3 decorative buttons. It can be teamed with a delicate matching scalloped edged rib beanie. The cardigan is knitted flat in one piece to the armholes with a garter stitch front band. To finish, stitches for neckband are picked up and all seams 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).
Four sizes for Cardigan in ages: newborn-3 (3-9, 9-12, 12-18) months
Three sizes for hat by ages: newborn-3 (3-9, 9-18) months
Needles: 4mm and 3.25mm straight needles and DPNs in both sizes
Notions: Stitch holder and 3 buttons
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.
