Baby sweaters are so sweet and super fast to knit. They are the perfect opportunity to practice your skills playing with color and knitting stripes or adding pockets, because if you make a mistake it’s easy to fix – and babies are slightly less vocal about their opinions! Grellow Ducks is destined to become your go-to baby shower knit; it’s a fast knit, worked seamlessly from the bottom up. It is worked in a neutral, all-baby friendly palette, and offers a sporty look with the striped pockets. The toy duck fits nicely in the pocket and adds an extra element of fun to this adorable cardigan.
