Christina is my dear, sweet 8 month-old niece who has a smile that lights up a room and warms your heart. I held her on my lap recently and, as our eyes locked, I could “hear” her say, “won’t you please knit me a purple sweater?“ Your wish is my command, Christina.
The pattern is “Cardigans for Baby” by Reynolds, No. 82260. Worsted weight yarn and size 8 knitting needles make it a quick knit, and it is worked in one piece to the underarms, so there is little sewing required. The eyelet patterned yoke is easy and adds all the pizazz:
Here’s hoping that Christina loves her new sweater and that, next time, she won’t be “asking” for an Estonian lace baby blanket.
