From the Knit Rowan website:
Knit this adorable baby cardigan, a design from the Rowan archive originally featured in Classic Babies. Designed by Martin Storey using Baby Merino Silk DK, a luxury machine washable yarn designed specifically for babies (merino superwash wool and tussah silk), this soft button up cardigan is adorned with fluffy chick motifs.

Baby cardigan with raglan sleeves, crew neck, buttoning up the front, with moss st edging. Two fuzzy chicks are knit separately and sewn onto fronts; embroidery creates additional details like chick legs.
