Aoibh toddler cardigan

This little cardigan only has one aran stitch for you to master, the diamond pattern - the sleeves are simply worked in double moss stitch, as is the neckband. The front bands are included rather than being made separately. Make it in pastels, confetti or in a whole range of colours suitable for little ones. Aoibh is pronounced as Eve, and means “beauty, radiance.”

I learned to knit as a child living in both Ireland and England. I love the intricate work of aran garments, but it was only when my first grandchild came along that I began to design for babies and children - for her first child my daughter had wanted a tiny sweater with a particular aran stitch on the front, I couldn't find a pattern so decided to make one up!
