This cardigan is specially designed for babies in the Special Care Nursery of King Edward Hospital, Perth, Western Australia.

The seamless cardigan is knitted from the top down with raglan increases. The body of the cardigan is knitted in one piece and sleeves are knitted in the round. The front bands are picked up and then knitted all around the cardigan.
