Lamb’s Ear Cardigan

FullSizeRender-2Lamb’s Ear Hooded Cardigan pattern by Wendy Lechner. This adorable little baby sweater was knit by a friend. Shari made a few changes to the pattern. She is thinking about adding what would have been lamb ears and making them frog eyes. The green yarn is better suited to a frog than a lamb. She also changed the edging and created a seed stitch edge rather than the 1×1 rib. When she got to the decreases in the sleeves, Shari left them wider.  A baby’s forearms are usually equally plump from wrist to shoulder, making the sweater more comfortable for little ones.

You can be as creative as you want with the buttons. Shari chose simple wood buttons giving the sweater a classic and timeless feeling.

The yarn used for this project is by West Yorkshire Spinners. It is from their Bo Peep line, Pure. It is a DK weight made from soft 100% Falkland Islands yarn, perfect for precious baby garments (it is hand wash only).
