Notes

Friends are having babies this year! That fact in combination with a skein of BMFA STR heavyweight led to this pattern.

Baby Brioche is a seamless baby cardigan knit in brioche stitch. The brioche stitch creates a lofty fabric that is squeezably soft and incredibly stretchy, good qualities for a garment made for a growing babe. The body is worked top-down and flat while the sleeves are worked circularly.

Pattern features include a Channel Island cast on which rolls over into the brioche stitch ribs beautifully; a front opening with finished edges worked along with the body; and a combination of crocheted and I-cord button loops worked after the garment is finished, allowing button placement where wanted. Body increases are strategically placed and mirror-imaged, giving a sense of balance to the whole.

This is a one-skein project with Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock heavyweight.

Pattern tested by members of Ravelry’s Free Pattern Testers group. Thanks, ladies!

The pattern lists needle size US#6/4.25 mm; 4.0mm should work, too (Rav lists 4.0mm for US#6).
