Autumn Rainbow Toddler Cardigan (knit)

Baby sweaters knit up quick, especially with bulky yarn. Great little projects to practice on!



Love the asymmetry and self-striping yarn! 



Materials
  • less than 2 balls of Isaac Mizrahi Craft Yarn Sutton in Amsterdam
    • 1 ball is 68 yds, 4oz
    • 85% acrylic, 15% wool
    • recommends US 17 (12.75 mm) knitting needles for 4" x 4" = 8S x 11R
  • used US 15 (10.0 mm) 29 inch circular knitting needles (gauge: 4" x 4" = 9S x 12R)
  • yarn needle
  • stitch markers
  • large button

Finished Measurements:
  • chest circumference = 20 inches
  • back waist length from top of collar to bottom hem = 10.5 inches
  • armhole depth = 4.5 inches
Notes: 
  • Inspired by Taiga Hilliard Designs' "Wee Zippy" pattern.
  • Followed pattern above but used bulkier yarn and bigger needles to make it a bigger size. Finished measurements approximately fits for 12-18 month old. 
  • For the repetition of rows 11 and 12, repeated until sweater measures 6 inches instead of the 4 inches specified in the pattern.Wanted a longer length to go over the hips. Plus, needed a longer length due to age.
