Raglan Cardi

Raglan Cardi

And here is a close up of the buttons, and cute baby boy lips.

This is the Raglan Cardi from Baby Knits For Beginners by Debbie Bliss. I used the called for yarn, Debbie Bliss Cotton Dk, in teal. This was an alright yarn to work with. I think it suits the pattern well. I can't imagine using it for an adults garment, it would be very heavy. My hands did grow tired working with it, but it worked up nice and quickly. I made the size for a 3 year old and lengthened the body and sleeves to fit my 4 year old. Worked well thanks to Debbie Bliss' crazy big children's sizing. Next up, a dress for Fiona from the same book.
