Bláithín by Kate Davies
A comprehensive knitting pattern from Kate Davies, Bláithín is a seamless cardigan, knitted in a worsted weight yarn and includes instructions for making in 15 sizes! So from one years old right through to fit 50.5" bust.
The body and sleeves are knitted in the round from the bottom up, with inset pockets added and the yoke is knit in a simple colourwork pattern. Crocheted reinforcements are then worked down the centre of the cardigan, a steek is cut and stitches are picked up along the front openings. A neat edging is then worked all around the cardigan to finish off!
The design of this cardigan is simple but some of the techniques involved in making it may be new to you. The pattern does however include instructions on those techniques.
