Inspired by the fascinating geometry of the Star Paths Cardigan, the Baby Steps Cardigan is a smaller version for baby, and a great way to try out the same construction method and the beautiful colors of Charlemont Hand-dyed. This sweet cardigan is started in the center back, radiates out, then back in again for the front - lacy eyelets help mark your way.
