There is nothing quite like welcoming a new baby to the family! I’m lucky enough to be aunt to a plethora of munchkins, including a new arrival down in Australia. I’m tickled blue! Of course babies have their own timelines, and I’m a procrastinator, which means I had to knock out baby’s present ASAP!
Enter….the Puerperium Cardigan.
Knit in DK on 4 mm needles, this newborn size flew off my needles!
The pattern calls for 7 buttons all down the side opening, but since I am oh-so-awesome at math I only bought six. Nothing for it but a bit of modification, and because really, who wants to do up 7 buttons on a squirmy newborn anyways!
This is sirdar’s baby bamboo, and while I love the finish product, I have a heck of a time keeping this slippery yard in equal tension and oh my word it takes forever to dry. But the finish…just beautiful!
I packed this bad boy off with my SIL’s mom to welcome the new baby along with her double heart socks and some chocolate. Cause that’s how I roll 😉
Welcome baby D! You are very loved all over the world!
