A babies cardigan knit up in a sweet snowflake lace pattern with easy care cotton yarn. The cute cropped style is perfect for layering over spring and summer dresses, but you can easily knit a more traditional length if desired.

Difficulty: Hard
Yarn: Rowan Purelife Organic Cotton 4ply (50g, 180 yards)
Amount Needed: 2 skeins (all sizes)
Sizes: 0-3 m ( 3-6 m, 6-9 m)
Needles: 3 mm (3US) circular
Gauge: 6 sts and 12 rows per inch over snowflake pattern
Notions: Yarn needle, scissors, 2.5 mm crochet hook, stitch holder, stitch marker, 3 buttons (more for longer lengths)

Notes: The sweater is knit from the hem up, split for the back and fronts, and seamed along the top of the sleeves. Due to the lace stitch pattern, stitch count is not consistent in each row.
