    This is a sweet baby cardigan, ideal for the new little boy or girl in your life. It looks good in pastels or strong colours. The front bands are made separately, so you can knit the cardigan before the baby arrives and sew the bands on at the last minute – unless you already know the gender, of course. Fiachra is pronounced fee-ack-rah, and means “raven,” although some sources state the meaning to be “saint.” There are six pages to the pattern, with written instructions and photographs.
    Double knitting yarn was used for the pictured garment, you don't need to use the yarn specified as long as you make sure that you check the gauge. The garment is knit flat, so only straight needles are required.
