Baby cardigans are cute, but I always dread making buttonholes! But I have good news, there’s a way out of this situation – kimono cardis. Simple construction of these designs makes the halves of the front overlap, which is quite easy to pull off even for beginners. Secure it with ribbon or string, which you can tie in a lovely bow. I love the uncomplicated look of these cardis, but if you need to add more bling, be creative! You can experiment with edgings, colors, patterns, embroidery or intarsia. It’s all up to you! Hand-knitted cardigan will be a cherished baby shower gift. Take a look at examples below and search for links to free patterns under the pictures.
