Baby’s 1st Fair Isle Cardigan is a circularly knit, steeked infant’s fingering weight cardigan with Fair Isle-style motifs and raglan shoulders. It is knit in four colors: one main color + three accent colors. The samples were knit in Dale Baby Ull yarn which is no longer available in North America; however, you can use countless fingering / baby / sock weight yarns - whatever strikes your fancy!

The pattern offers two silhouettes:

Bell-shaped (shown in mint): An extra-full, bell-shaped torso gets gathered just below the yoke.

Straight (shown in grey): A classic, straight-sided body.GAUGE: 32 sts and 40 rows = 4” / 10cm in solid-colored stockinette stitch.

NEEDLES: If you tend to knit loosely, try US#2 (2.75mm) & US#0 (2.00mm); if you tend to knit tightly, try US#2 1/2 (3.00mm) & US#1 (2.25mm).
