5/9/2012 - I am on a knitting break. Life got really busy and sadly I do not have time to fix this pattern right now. Sorry for the inconvenience!

2/3/12 - Updated to Add: I have read a couple of comments regarding sizing and sleeve length issues. I will rework the pattern and make some adjustments. If you have any other recommendations, I am all ears! Please email to beknitpicky@gmail.com Thank you!!!

Hoot Cardigan is a unisex cardigan that is knit all in one piece. Using worsted weight, this cardi knits up quick! Perfect baby shower gift, especially when the gender of the baby is not yet known!

Sizes: Newborn, (3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12
Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Worsted in Rich Chocolate.
1 skein (1,2,2,2)
Substitute Yarns: Malabrigo Rios, Cascade 220,
Spud and Chloe Sweater, Lorna’s Laces Shepherd

Pattern Notes: Hoot Cardigan is knit from the top down. Button holes are worked every 12 rows. First 3 stitches and last 3 stitches of each row make up garter stitch button band . For raglan increases, you will be knitting into the front and back of each stitch before the marker and after the marker. The body of the cardigan is knit in stockinette stitch, minus the owl cable pattern and button bands of course. If you have any questions, please contact me at beknitpicky@gmail.com

Skill: Beginner to Intermediate. Must know how to do cables, yarn overs and knit two stitches together. I wrote the pattern assuming that the Knitter knows how to keep track of button hole rows and the owl cable pattern without writing row by row out.
