Slim, I didn't use a pattern, but you could probably adapt any basic crew neck cardigan with inset sleeves to the same look. I used 4 rows of St st on all the edges for the rolled edge and 5 rows of 1X1 ribbing in the CC. The button bands were done vertically and the neck edge picked up right at the top of the button bands and then continued up with the neck so that the rolled edge was continuous at the neck.

I'm glad you like it.

I have a Phildar booklet of baby things and it's hard to find yarns that give the same look.
There are a lot of really nice yarns I've used over the years that are gone now.
I have quite a few of the Phildar pattern books for babies and children. A lot of their yarns were blends of acrylic and wool that had a nicer quality than straight acrylic. Many of the old ones are gone but Phidar still makes blends like this but you can't get them anywhere in this country that I know of any more and I can't figure out how to tell what I'm getting looking at the French site.

You should! You can start with something like a shrug, which is smaller, even.

Marigold, nice sweater! whether the baby boy enjoys it or not, at least the parents and everyone else who sees it on him will!
