This baby cardigan uses the same stitch pattern that I used on the adult Clayton Vest, the pattern I shared with you yesterday. I love this stitch detail. I also love moss stitch, there I’ve said it! When I say I love moss stitch in the studio to visiting knitters I get two replies - “Oh yes, I love it too” or “Do you, I don’t!” Never anything in between! So this pattern is perfect for knitters, n o matter which of those replies they would have given. There are a few rows of stocking stitch alternating with moss stitch so, if you love moss stitch, you can knit the stocking stitch getting excited about when you will start the moss stitch again and, if you don’t you can relax on the moss stitch rows knowing that soon you will be knitting the stocking stitch!

This cardigan is unisex and I’ve kept it simple yet different by adding the button detail and then you can always add the perfect colour buttons on afterwards for baby.
This cardigan is knitted in one piece until the armholes.
