Marino Baby Cardigan


This single pattern is available as a download.

My design ideas and advice: This is a simple garter stitch raglan cardigan with tiny details that make it just a little bit different. It is knitted all in one until the armholes so there aren’t any side seams. However when you knit something all in one it doesn’t always have the structure that side seams create so I included a tiny detail to give the cardigan “fake seams” but it is still easy to knit.

I love creating simple designs that are easy to knit but have details that just create something extra special.

I named this unisex cardigan Marino because it is from the latin Marinus which means of the sea and the yarn I chose to knit this design with reminds me of the sea.

For this pattern I used:

Yarn & Amounts: 1(1:2:2:2) 100g hank(s) of Manos Del Uruguay Alegria (75% Merino and 25% Polyamide, 405m/445yds per 100g).

Metres: 230(370:510:650:790)m.

Needles: 3 mm.

Notions: 3(3:3:4:4) buttons.

Gauge (tension): 26 stitches and 54 rows to 10cm/4ins square over stocking stitch using 3mm needles.
