This stockinette stitch cardigan knits up quickly in an Aran-weight yarn.  A cotton and silk mixture, the yarn lends the fabric of this classic style a slight hint of sheen.

From elinor:
Just a note of caution: as with many Debbie Bliss patterns, this knits up larger than the size would indicate. As a general rule, I knit DB’s 3-6 month size for a 6-9 month old baby, adding maybe an inch or two for height. Her patterns tend to be wide and boxy.
