I made this cardigan from top down, using the Hourglass pattern (http://magknits.com/Dec06/patterns/hourglass.htm).
It's for my newborn grandniece and the yarn ist a soft acrylic.

I absolutely love it! Did you have a sweater pattern you used or did you make it up? I would love to knit one up for my sister who is expecting.... if you have a pattern for it. Thanks.

I'm very happy that you like my cardigan :cheering:
I decided what I want to do, then I was looking for a nice stitch pattern and found the hourglass pattern.
I made a gauge and then I used a German site with a top-down raglan calculator. It's nearly like this one (http://www.fromthehartle.freeservers.com/KnittingPatterns/TopDownRaglan.html). The calculator told me how many stitches I have to cast on.
But the calculator gives only the number of stitches for a sweater and so I divided the front stitches and added 6 stitches for the garter stitch border on each side.
After that I took my circs and started to knit :D
The increases for the raglan I made with YOs. I started with the hourglass pattern at the end of the increases because it's very tricky to knit a pattern between the raglan lines. In each 2. row you make 8 new stitches and it's really not easy to assimilate these stitches to a pattern. And instead spending hours and hours with calculating and testing I prefer knitting :wink:
I hope this will help you for your project a little bit :D
