This is a textured baby/toddler raglan cardigan, a perfect addition for those chilly evenings in spring and autumn. The cabled rhombuses are embellished with small nupps (pearls) to create an intricate, yet sweet baby look, suitable for both boys and girls. Rhombuses and Pearls Cardigan is a relatively easy and fast going still interesting knit, which will add a touch of style to the little one wardrobe.

The piece is knitted flat, bottom up. The band is knit in-line with the body, forming a beautiful i-cord edge. The sleeves are worked separately, in the round and feature a detail of the same rhombuses and pearls design. At the yoke these are joined to the body, forming a raglan line up to the neck. 6 (7) buttons will be required for finishing.

The rhombuses and pearls motifs are both charted and with written instructions. The pattern is intended for sport yarn.

The repeating aran motif is easy to remember and the simple construction makes the knit suitable for both adventurous beginners and intermediate knitters.
