This is my first baby sweater on the passap. The pattern is from a To and Fro magazine but I don’t have the date or the issue of the pattern. It is called Baby’s Cardigan by Ann Baker. It is pattern 1000 on the E 6000. The technique is 138-tuck stitch. It was very easy to do but I did not follow the pattern as it was written. I did not bind off the neck, shoulder or sleeves because I don’t like the thickness of the seam after joining and sometimes it is too tight and does not stretch. I joined the shoulders on the machine and the sleeves and band as well. The band was the quickest thing yet. The pattern called for two buttonholes but I put in three so that the top one is where the first increase is. When I finished, it would have looked okay with just two. I could not find cute white buttons because the fabric store had a huge closeout and will be restocking with another manufacturer. I did get heart buttons to put on a girls sweater but this couple is not revealing the babies sex so I had to go with plain. I made the hat and still have to do the booties. Click on picture to make larger to see the design. I like it because it almost matches the design in the afghan.
