Knitting a baby sweater is the perfect way to learn all the sweater techniques that would be necessary to knit an adult sweater, in a fraction of the time, and with a hopelessly adorable result! Our recently published Gramps cardigan is a perfect example, for while it is a relatively simple design, its simplicity requires a good number of intermediate knitting techniques.
- how to read a knitting pattern schematic
- how to do a provisional cast on
- how a top-down raglan is shaped
- pattern reading
- picking up stitches along an edge and in the middle of the fabric
- short row shaping
- weaving in ends
The tutorial split into 6 blog posts – start with #1 and work your way through!
