This practical and beautiful baby cardigan is part of our Olive pattern family - designs that showcase an allover lace patterning with ribbed edges. Olive Cardigan is worked seamlessly from the top down. The yoke and body are worked back and forth, while the sleeves are worked in the round. You start with the ribbed neckband and continue with the raglan construction yoke to the underarms. Sleeve stitches are then placed on hold to be worked after the body has been completed. Ribbed edges finish the body and sleeves, as well as the button bands that are worked by picking up stitches along the two fronts at the end. The Olive stitch pattern is charted only.
