Sweet Bunting Cardigan

Sweet Bunting Cardigan


What could be sweeter than a baby cardigan with its own colourwork bunting?

Worked seamlessly from the bottom up with a stranded colourwork yoke and fun ties that extend into the bunting string. The yarn is a super soft cotton, wool, linen and soy blend that comes in great colours, and the flags are a perfect place to use up a little bit of variegated or handspun yarn. Simple seed stitch at the edges are a classic touch.

Shown in size 20.5” / 52cm. Thanks to Jeanie for being such a cute model, Keri for letting me steal her baby, and Jasmine for her beautiful house!

    omg that is the sweetest cardi, Laura.

    You’re really beginning to branch out with your designs – it’s always exciting to see what you’ll come up with, next. You’re even inspiring me to try out a few of my own ideas!

    That’s adorable! I’m curious about the word “bunting” though…I always used it to refer to a sleeping bag sort of thing for babies
