My grandmother Marguerite was a classy, refined, impeccably dressed woman and a Marine in WWII! All class with lots of grit and gumption and my niece Clemie is a spitting image of her. I had them in mind when I designed “The New Kid” cardigan as it is one that I envision my grandmother slipping over her children as their “go to” cardigan.
The New Kid is a perfect cardigan for an easy classic knit with a twist. A seamless garter stitch raglan with a knitted-on cabled edge. Knitted in a worsted weight yarn it will be sure to knit up as a quick gift. Better yet it is sized for newborn through age 10 to fit all sizes of new kids in your life.
Techniques used: Increasing, decreasing, knitting in the round, cabling. Instructions for the cabled edge are both fully written and charted.
