A Cardi For Kate's Little Man


Pattern: Baby/toddlers seamless top down Fisherman's Rib Jacket P058
Size: 0-6 months
Designer: OGE Knitwear Designs
Yarn: Baby Natural DK by Naturally
Colour: 101
Needles: Circular 4.0 mm

It was such a pleasure to work on this pattern. It is a top down, seamless cardigan, knit in a New Zealand wool made from a rare breed Arapawa fleece. The wool is so soft to the touch that baby will feel as if he is being encased in the arms of a Gund bear! The yarn is spun only in the natural shades with no dyes or bleaches added.

This is a picture of an Arapawa sheep taken from the website, http://www.rarebreeds.co.nz/arapawa.html, which does a nice job of describing the breed.
