Swans Island Camden Cardigan PDF
There’s just something about garter stitch that makes it the perfect choice for a classic baby cardigan—and that's what you find in the Camden Cardigan. Simple and easy to knit, the pieces of this basic cardigan are worked back and forth in rows from the bottom up. The body and sleeves are joined at the armholes to work the yoke in one piece, and shoulder and sleeve seams complete the sweater. The rippled ridges of garter stitch create a cozy texture without overwhelming the little person who will wear this sweater.
