Knitted baby cardigan complete.
My first ever baby knit had the final button stitched on yesterday. This cardigan took me two weeks to make. The pattern is called "Fast Baby Cardigan" and is available on Ravelry here for free (you will need to make a Ravelry account to be able to access the pattern).
I am thrilled with the end result and I think it is the perfect size for a baby 3-6 months of age (I knitted the smallest size). As the parents are not finding out what they are having, I used a gender neutral coloured wool (Patons Dreamtime 8ply).
The only adjustment I made to the pattern was to replace the moss stitching with ribbed stitching as I like this look much better.
Next time I will definitely stitch in button holes, as the snaps were a little tricky to sew on.
I am thrilled with this result and I hope the mum-to-be will be too :-)
I think I can now add 'knitting' to my stitching repertoire!
