Capucine’s knit baby cardigan pattern is a great baby shower gift pattern. If you are a beginner knitter or you are not used to knitting garments yet, this simple design using only the knit and purl stitches with basic increases and decreases is for you. With detailed illustrations, I walk you through every step of this easy beginner pattern. Knitted in one piece, minimum sewing, and weaving in of ends is involved.

Newborn babies grow so fast. Their parents receive tons of gifts for the first few months but half of it is already too small by the time they receive it. This is why this cardigan is sized 12 to 18 months. So the parents can enjoy your hand knitted item for longer. Depending on the color and style of buttons you choose you can make it for a baby boy or a baby girl.
