Hello! Knitwear season has well and truly arrived, and, if you have someone small to knit for, I have a new pattern just for you!
My Lots of Spots Cardigan is available in the latest issue of Knit Now Magazine (issue 148). The cardigan features bright spots in a rainbow of shades and is the perfect knit for brightening up a dull winter’s day.
The pattern is written in 5 sizes [0-3 (3-6, 6-12, 12-18, 18-24) months] with finished chest circumferences of 46 (48, 51.5, 53.5, 55) cm. Why not make a small one for this winter and a larger one for next year?
The cardigan is knitted from the bottom up in pieces, and the spots are incorporated using the intarsia technique. Finally, stitches are picked up for the neckband and front bands after the cardigan has been seamed.
This pattern is great for using up scraps – you’ll need two balls of the main colour, but you can go and have a look through your leftovers and use whatever takes your fancy for the spots!
I used wooden buttons for the sample (I love wooden buttons, I have a pile on standby because they go with everything), but you could choose colourful buttons to highlight one colour of spot, or you could even make each button a different colour.
Want to knit your own Lots of Spots Cardigan for a loved
one? You can find the pattern in issue 148 of Knit Now Magazine. Full details
