Puerperium Cardigan

Yarn: Malabrigo Rios, Sunset
Needles: US 7

Now that I have a model, I can show you the Puerperium Cardigan that is a must knit for a newborn. This beautiful sweater is named after the puerperium period, the first six weeks post birth. It is the first small baby item that I have really enjoyed knitting, due to the entirely seamless construction and straight forward pattern. The yarn was a treat for me to use and I love the wooden buttons. It looked like it came out a bit larger than the pattern intended, due to using worsted weight wool, instead of DK, but it fits Juliana perfectly.
