FO: Baby Top-Down Cardigan
I was so impressed with this little cardigan (Stylecraft 4577) that I wanted to make one just like it. I ordered the pattern, but was disappointed to discover that it was knit in 5 pieces and seamed. I think this is a ridiculous way to make a baby cardigan, and decided to just wing it as a top down, one piece knit. The yarn (Sirdar Click DK) had been in my stash for years, and itís a bit splitty, but itís soft and washable. This is for my newest grandson, Liam, who is almost 5 months old.

I love it! So masculine and cute! And I agree...hate unnecessary seaming!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

It looks really good. The collar is nice, and I like the stripes.
