I wanted to make a cardigan that would be the perfect baby shower gift to give to anyone expecting a little girl. Originally made for the baby of a lovely lady, who studies the Dīrgha Āgama, this had to be the name of the pattern as well.

I have made a new version in sizes 3 months till 8 years in DK/8-ply yarn - see Dirghagama girl cardigan for sale

The pattern is made to fit a 6 months old baby (using the Craft Yarn Council’s measurements), but of course babies are born different sizes. So, maybe it will fit from birth for a large baby or maybe it will fit from 1 year for a very small baby. I made it this particular size so that there is a relatively big chance of it fitting most babies at some point in their first year.

I hope you enjoy knitting this quick and simple 1 ball project and I am looking forward to seeing your versions of it :-)

I would love to see your projects on my Facebook page or Instagram too.

Update 18.09.2013: Updated the English pattern with the changes for errors found in the FPT test. Thanks to testers: zrinka, sawyerscience, mep4156, Birdsrus, 63Stella, Ayala120, EllenBagge

Update 11.09.2013: Danish version is now updated. Instead of the previous Danish/English version this is now a full Danish translation of the pattern thanks to EllenBagge :-) I decided to remove the old Danish version but can bring it back if anyone is interested.

Update 06.09.2013: Portuguese version is now available - thank you so much to CarolBuz :-)

Update 27.08.2013: Danish version now available - this is not a full translation but rather a version with Danish explanations helping Danish knitters to understand the English pattern

Update 16.08.2013: Spanish version now available - thank you to HilosyLanas :-)

Update 12.08.2013: Newest version of the pattern where the confusion around the rows where the stitch markers are dropped should be solved.

The pattern will so far be translated into Danish and Spanish. If you are interested in translating the pattern into other languages please pm me :-)
