Baby Boy Brown and Blue

Pattern: Garter Yoke Baby Cardi
Designer: Jennifer Hoel
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino
Needles: Circular - 3.25 mm and 3.5 mm

My virtuous streak continues with this baby cardigan being made with leftover Debbie Bliss yarn from another project. The pattern calls for a double knitting but I've used the sport weight and sized it for 3-6 months.
The Baby Cashmerino yarn feels very soft to the touch and the colors are lovely but I think the yarn needs to be knit at a tighter than recommended gauge to get a garment that holds its shape well without excessive drape.
If there had been more ivory color in the yarn drawer, I would have done it up for Baby Oliver but that not-so-wee bairn is always going to need clothes a size or two or three above the norm for his age! It will just have to wait in tissue paper for a smaller baby boy to come along.
