With its contrast-colored trims and edging, the hooded cardigan is the next step in one’s baby-knitting repertoire. Worked similarly to the basic cardigan, the stitches for the hood are picked up from the neck edge and worked flat, then joined at the top. Garter stitch finishes the edges all around, and a final embellishment of i-cord or crochet chain button loops caps off this adorable sweater.
