Easy Baby Ella Cardigan & Beanie Pattern

This is one pattern that you just HAVE to have if you have a new baby due!
A very simple baby cardigan and beanie set that a beginner can make. Soft and snuggly and just right for a baby shower gift.  Make it in a lovely soft merino yarn, and it will be just too gorgeous for words !



Lots of pictures to help you along in the pattern. 
A lovely gift for a new baby
Perfect for baby boys or baby girls

The beanie has a roll-brim to make it an easy fit, and so that you can roll the brim down as baby grows.
The cardigan is knit from the bottom up in one piece to under the arms, then has very easy shaping.
The edges are knit into the pattern, so there is no fiddling to add button edges afterwards.

A lovely versatile cardigan that can be made plain, or you can embroider flowers on it for a baby girl, 
sew on fabric decals (like little ducks or bears for a boy)

Skill level : Beginner level knitter. You need to be able to knit, purl and cast off. 
I knitted back and forth on a circular needle, but you can use straight needles too.

MATERIALS REQUIRED:
Any Double knit / 8ply yarn
5.5mm / US 9 knitting needles
1 button
