Top Down Baby Cardigan with Susan B. Anderson

Learn the ins and outs of making a simple raglan-style top-down baby cardigan. A pattern to make a basic top-down cardigan will be provided, which includes lots of options for different edgings, button bands, closures, a hood, short or long sleeve…and you'll get lots of choices to create your own one-of-a-kind baby sweater. The main pattern sizes include newborn to 2 years old. Also included in the class materials is a tiny ornament-sized cardigan pattern that you can opt to make during class. The tiny size of this pattern makes it easy to get to all of the concepts of a top-down seamless sweater. Tips and tricks are provided to make this cardigan and other top-down garments simple and fast. A winning formula for knitting and designing your own baby cardi (and ANY larger cardigan, including adult sizes!) is included in the class and will be discussed.
