I made this cardigan for a friend, when she was expecting her 4th daughter :-) It’s a very simple seamless hoodie with a braided cable down the front, from the top of the hood.

I wrote the pattern so it would (hopefully) be possible for a slightly advanced beginner to follow, but please don’t hesitate to ask if something is unclear! I include links to video tutorials on all techniques used in the pattern.

I have added ideas for buttonholes in the cabled braid instead of the i-cord loops, as well as 2 alternative front edgings :-)

Credit goes to the wonderful Easy Baby Cardigan and the Cardigan for Merry for the inspiration to make this :-)
