There’s no way the Cardigans of the Galaxy pattern series would be complete without one dedicated to the cutest baby arboreal ever; Lyrical Knits Baby Groot is a unisex, kid-size version of the grownup I Am Groot Cardigan for your favorite little sprout. Worked seamlessly in DK weight yarn from the top-down, Baby Groot features the same tree-like cable panel and smaller cables along the v-neck front that mimics the look of branches. This version has raglan sleeves that are initially worked along with the bodice and then completed by working in the round once the bodice is done. The cable patterns are charted and written out.
