I thought this pattern for Felix’s cardigan was super cute so decided to knit it for my hospital bag, in addition to the Puerperium that turned out pretty big. The pattern is pretty quick and easy, it is another raglan style cardigan which is knit in one piece (my favourite type – no seaming!). I used Sublime baby cashmere merino silk DK in a nice blueish green colour called Robins Egg.
As my last cardigan turned out a little bit big, I decided to knit this lovely V-neck cardy in a smaller size. I was expecting that our baby was going to be on the small side, as I am only 5 ft 1″ and my husband is about 5 ft 7″ and very slim build. However, in the last few weeks, both my doctor and midwife have said that the baby seems tall and will be about 8lbs if I go the full 40 weeks! The yarn is pretty stretchy so hopefully it will fit for a week or two at least!! I am in the process of knitting a Newborn Vertebrae which is a little on the small side too, I may have to donate it if my baby turns out to be as big as the doctor thinks!
