Baby Sideswipe Cardi

Lorna Miser's adorable Baby Sideswipe Cardi is an excessively easy, and excessively striking, baby cardigan that shows off the self striping effect of Finlanda's Cancun yarn brilliantly. Cancun does all the striping work for you, it knits up in this fun and playful pattern. The no sewing construction is easy you start by making the body in one piece, sideways, then pick up stitches for the hem and front and back yokes. Then bind off the shoulders together and pick up stitches for the sleeves in the round and work down to the cuff. Which means, No Sewing! This drop shouldered cardi is great for boys or girls, simply choose which side you want for buttons.
