Baby knitting

The lovely thing about knitting baby things - is that it takes almost no time at all (except when you screw up the sizing and have to reknit it again!!)

I knit this cardigan and beret set for Robynn of Purlescence for her daughter who's turning 1 soon. It's being modelled by Zoe. The cardigan is simple top down raglan with rolled neckline and hems with 2 rows of eyelets on the yoke and near the edges. I even found matching buttons in my button stash for the cardigan. The edges are 1x1 rib for 5 stitches. The cardigan is inspired by a cardigan from a Phildar magazine ( I need to hunt out the magazine number and a picture). The yarn is Fleece Artist Organic Wool in the colourway Flirt. It's really yummy to knit with (unless you have a wool allergy!)

Hi Ling!

This is so cute and your daughter is a very good model. :)

How long did it take to knit the set?

Hi Mary
Only a week or so for the cardigan and 1 or 2 days for the hat. I don't get much knitting time at the moment
