Baby’s cardigan hoodie

This is “Lillie’s Little Sweater,” another Cottage Creations pattern by Carol Anderson, with Joan DeBolt this time. I almost took a pass on knitting this because it seemed too simple to be worth the effort. Not so. It’s simple, but keeps your attention and comes out super cute.

It is worked top down, starting with the folded-back edge of the hood. I chose the garter stitch hood (stockinette directions are supplied as well) with garter stitch borders on the sleeves and at the bottom of the sweater. The raised stitch increases for the raglan sleeves add a subtle decorative touch. This is a super quick knit, worked up here in worsted weight Plymouth Encore. The six months size seems a tad large but that’s fine. It used up all but about 10 yards of two skeins.

  1. Noreen, I absolutely love your hoodies. I live in the UK and have been searching for the pattern but no luck. It is on Ravelry but no way to buy it. Please could you send me a link of where to buy it – by mail or online. Many thanks Lynda
