Here’s the German translation - Baby Cardi Kraus rechts gestrickt, courtesy of Susanne.

Here’s the Italian at La Maglia Di Marica. Thanks Marica.

Here’s the Spanish version thanks to MJ in Barcelona - Copper Kettles and Woolen Mittens.

It’s a simple little cardi with super speedy top-down, seamless raglan construction and an optional I-cord button band. My version was knit with less than 3 skeins of Knit Picks Andean Treasure sportweight alpaca on US 4 (3.5mm) needles at a gauge of 22sts = 4? in stockinette. It’s silly soft and a little fuzzy and toasty as can be. The finished measurements are 20? at the chest and 10? in length. So a 6-12 month sized baby? Or older or younger or something.

The sweater is a very basic, easily adjustable pattern. Tweak ’till your heart’s content. Use thinner yarn and smaller needles for a smaller sweater or thicker yarn and larger needles for a bigger one, just be sure to adjust the length accordingly.
