I've been experimenting with modular knitting using the Lion Brand Amazing yarn and had great fun with colours, shapes and texture. Part of this was to create a baby cardigan pattern using mitred squares, shaped sleeves, garter stitch panels and try to make it seamless. I almost got away with it but then decided to knit the two side/sleeve seams together in a three needle bind off. It gives a lovely neat seam inside, involves NO sewing and means I can rip it back and reknit the yarn when baby is too small for this one. I used the Mauna Loa colourway and added an icord border, the smallest size used 1.5 balls of yarn.
Here are a few pics, the pattern is being written up in sizes from birth to 2yrs, smallest size is shown in the photos. It'll be available as a download both here and on Ravelry and will be a sold as part of a kit with the Amazing yarn, buy two balls of Amazing yarn and get the pattern free. Just remember to request the free pattern when buying two balls of Amazing or more, don't add the pattern to your basket as you'll be charged.
It's now available, so add your coupon code to the comments part of your order and I'll print a version for you and add the pdf version to your account here on the website so you can download it. If you are a Ravelry.com member, do let me have your username and I'll add the pdf to your Ravelry Account at the same time. If you don't want to knit with Amazing, don't worry, the pattern will be available as a download via the website at a price of £2.50 and available in our Ravelry pattern store. Thanks for all your positive comments.
