Striped Yoke Cardigan


This is a super-simple baby cardigan with a small amount of colourwork to give it an interesting twist. The cardy is knitted from the top down and gradually increases over the yoke before splitting for the sleeves and body. It’s a really simple way of knitting and I thoroughly recommend it if you’ve never done it before – especially as it limits the amount of sewing up you need to do!

Sizes: 3-6m (6-9, 9-12, 12-18)

Tension: 25 sts and 34 rows to 10cm using 3.25mm needles

You will need:

3 ( 4, 4, 5) 25g balls of Pudding (previously Swaddle) in Main Colour (MC) (shown here in pavlova) 
1 ball each of contrast colours (shown in CC1, fondant fancy and CC2, marshmallow)
3mm and 3.25mm needles (80cm circular is best)
Optional: 3mm and 3.25mm double pointed needles for working sleeves in the round
4 x 1cm (3/8”) buttons

Plump Superchunky and Plump DK are made from the highest quality superfine merino and baby alpaca.  These really are special and luxurious fibres and should be treated carefully!  Having said that both yarns are suitable for delicate hand washing.  Use a specialist detergent and do not agitate or twist the fibres to retain the gorgeous softness and shape of your garment.

Because of the roving nature of our yarns (they are single ply, rather than tightly twisted), some shedding may occur.  The best way to deal with this is spray your finished garment with water and leave to dry flat, naturally before the first wearing.  This sets the fibres and should stop any problems.  If you want any further advice just drop us a line at [email protected]

Using your yarn
All our yarn comes in skeins.  Before using you need to wind the skein into a ball or you will get into an awful tangled mess!  If you are not sure how to do this you can watch our video here!
