This is a top-down raglan shaped cardigan, designed for babies. For ease and speed the collar, hems, and button band are all knitted as you go.

This is a quick and simple design that looks good in any colour. One piece. No seams.

The bottom of the cardigan features my broken checkerboard pattern, which you may have seen on a few of my other designs.
