This set for the smallest ones consists of a blanket and a cardigan. The lace-pattern was inspired from my latest summer-top design for adults:

The cardigan
The cardigan is worked seamlessly, from the top-down.
You start from the rounded yoke is worked in lace-pattern. Thereafter you work a section in stockinette before work is separated for lower body, and sleeves.
The hems of sleeves and body are worked in a stitch-pattern. The button-bands are worked from picked-up sts.
Sleeves are worked in-the-round, and top-down. They might, of course, be worked to any length.

Newborn/3 mo/6mo/1 year (41/43/48/54 cm = 16/17/19/21.25” - finished chest-measurement).

Yarn: I used Malabrigo “Arroyo” to work the cardigan. This sport weight yarn in 100% merino comes in skeins of 305 meters/334 yards and 100 gr/3.53 oz. The sample is worked in colour-way “Reflecting Pool”. The total yardage needed is approximately 150/200/250/325 meters 165/218/272/375 yards. Needles: it is important that you choose needles to obtain gauge (see further below). I used straight needles 3 mm/US2.5 for the neckline, a circular needle, 80 cm/32” long, 3.5 mm/US4 for the body, a set of dpns 3 mm/US2.5 for the sleeves. Notions: 1 removable stitch-markers, tapestry needle, blocking tools, 3 buttons (13 mm/0.5” across).

24 sts and 34-36 rows in stockinette sts = 10 x 10 cm/4 x 4”

The blanket
The blanket is one-size (but you could easily work it smaller/larger by subtracting/adding pattern-repeats).
The sample measures 47 cm x 60 cm /18.5” x 24”,
which is a good size as a pram-blanket, or small wrap.

The blanket is worked flat, from short-side to short-side.
The edge is worked as an i-cord, from sts you pick up as you work around the edge.

I used the same yarn/needles as for the cardigan.
You will need approximately 600 m/654 yards of the main-colour (Reflecting Pool) for the main-section, 100 m/109 yards of the contrasting colour (Indiecita) for the i-cord edge.

The pattern
The lace-patterns of the yoke as well as for the blanket are charted AND written out, row-by-row.
The pattern for the hems is written out row-by-row.
There is a schematic (cardigan).
All measurements are given in cm’s, as well as in inches.
