Favorite Little Sweaters

There are some patterns that I keep going back to time and again.

Elizabeth Zimmerman's February baby sweater is my most favorite little girl cardigan.  I knit the first one for a niece, then one for the small fry, one for my cousin's baby and have just cast one on.  This latest version is the most wonderful green, and it reminds me of the patina that copper gets after some good weathering, and I think it is going to be a good gift for a brand new Irish girlie… can't wait!

Latest version in "mineral" green. Ravelry here.

Fingering weight red. Ravelry here.

Minty baby cash merino. Ravelry here.

Louet and covered buttons. Ravelry here.

And when it comes to a non-lace cardigan for babes, Debbie Bliss's Classic Raglan Cardigan is one I continue to return to.  It's darling in solid color and also really easy to stripe.  Here is some Worsted Cotton that is earmarked for a to-be-here shortly little fellow.  And below are my previously knit versions.  Happy knitting friends.

Awaiting the knitting… Ravelry here.
