Warmth can be an odd thing to talk about, especially when the heat of the summer is pressing down upon us. But in this modern era, where the indoors are often over-chilled, I find that we still need warmth, physical warmth, even during the oppressive summer months.

No one needs more warmth, even during the summer, than new little babes. With their small size, they are especially vulnerable to chills as the temperatures swing. Help them stay comfortable by knitting a pretty little cardigan.

With a single button, it is easy to slip on and off as needed. On when the AC kicks into high gear, off when heading out into the sunshine. The lace pattern is pretty, feminine, but also functional. It provides enough coverage to keep the little ones warm, while allowing enough circulation to keep them from overheating.

Welcome a new one by wrapping them in warmth, or knit for an older, equally cherished, babe. Either way, this is sure to be a knit that is enjoyed this summer and for many to come.
