From Knitting for Baby:  Wrapping or dressing a baby in fine-quality cashmere is, indeed, extravagant, but it also seems entirely appropriate.  Whose baby doesn't need to be caressed in one of the softest. lightest, warmest, and most luxurious fibers available?  And what better way to knit a message of I Love You and You are Special than to make this deluxe trio, or one of its pieces.

This classic cardigan features a mock cable twist that is worked into a simple knit 2, purl 2 rib, referred to in the pattern as a Mini Cable Rib.
