:: Perfect Spring Baby Cardigan Free Knitting Pattern :: Here’s a free knitting pattern for a project that takes me back to when I first learned to knit in high school. It’s for a baby cardigan that has simple, but cute details. I remember learning to create and count those little ‘holes’ in the knit work. To this day, I adore how the simple holes created this pattern into the knitting. It was so easy, but looked so sophisticated. My original baby cardigan had long sleeves, but I love this Summer / Spring baby cardigan’s short sleeves that look like angel wings. Perfect for newborn little angel girls that are soon going to be 6 mths olds.
It’s a free original pattern by Roued, a Danish programmer who loves archaeology and history. She who obviously knows how to give a feminine flair to life as well!

This project will knit up fast as it is made with Chunky weight knitting yarn. This particular yarn is by Rowan. You can use all kinds of chunky weight yarns however. Just ensure that the gauge or stitch count is comparable with the pattern, i.e 12 st for 4″ (10 cm), after blocking.
The finished size of this baby pattern is 9″ long and 18″ width (23 cm l; 45 cm w) around the chest, before blocking. Blocking would add about 1″ (approx 3cm) in width. This is the pattern for a size 6 months old baby, referencing the Craft Yarn Council’s measurements.
