This delightful little baby cardigan has been crocheted using DK yarn (AUS 8 ply) (USA light worsted). The Bobtail cardigan is worked in one piece, so there are no parts to sew together! The textured cluster stitch pattern is pretty from both sides and is reversible up until you sew the button on. You can choose to have the smooth side showing or the textured bumpy side 😊
Designed with comfort in mind, this baby cardigan has a fairly loose fit to easily go over Babies clothes.
