Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,
I have the Hello Baby Cardigan pattern ready for you today. It’s the perfect gift for the new baby in your life. This is a tiny cardigan worked from the top-down with an attached I-cord edging with built in buttonholes. It is sized to fit newborn to three months.
Here is some information you might like to know:
Size: To fit newborn to 3 months
8 inches in length from shoulder to bottom edge
16½ inches chest circumference
Yarn:Spud & Chloë Sweater (55% superwash wool, 45% organic cotton; 160 yards/100 grams), 2 hanks in Igloo #7517 for the cardigan and 1 hank (or a small amount) in Toast #7506 for the edging
Needles: US size 7 needles, 24-inch circular and a set of 4 double-pointed needles or size to obtain gauge
*I also used a set of two US size 5 double-pointed needle for the applied I-cord edging. The smaller size needle for the applied I-cord gives a tighter effect but you could also use your larger dpns from the sleeves.
Gauge: 5 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch
I love the delicious little strawberry buttons I found stashed away in my daughter’s button collection. With her permission I stitched them onto the petite front edge. The juicy red really pops on the crisp white.
Have fun and keep me posted if you make a Hello Baby Cardigan for the little one in your life. You will surely be the hit of any baby shower if you show up with this as your gift!
