I am pleased to announce that my latest pattern has now been published.
Preemie Estelle’s Cardigan
A dear friend of mine asked me to create a simple long sleeved cardigan for her to knit.
And so this was designed for you, Estelle.
The cardigan is a top-down raglan sleeve garment. The collar is cast on and starts immediately. Next increases are worked to shape the front, back, and sleeves.
The sleeves stitches are then placed on stitch holders, and the front and back are joined and worked straight, including the hem. The sleeve stitches are then picked up and worked in the round. The button band is worked as you go.
~ Any standard DK weight yarn (the medium preemie size used approx. 120m and the large preemie size used approx. 150m)
~ 4.00mm Circular or Straight Knitting Needles
~ 4.00mm DPNs
~ 4/5 Buttons 10-12mm in diameter

Difficulty: Beginner/ Intermediate

If you are interested in larger sizes up to 2 years of age please note that these are still being created.
