The Right as Rainbow Baby Cardigan is a nifty little sweater that goes with everything! SIMPLE and FAST, this cardigan is knit seamlessly from the bottom up. It is a great pattern for beginners looking to branch out into more challenging projects AND it’s a stash buster! BONUS: This sweater includes your baby’s favorite accessory: Geometry! Don’t worry. You won’t have to do any math (I did it for you), but when you finish the cardigan, your baby can enjoy a fabulous rainbow nonagon. Tell me: who doesn’t love a nonagon?
