Poolbeg

When a friend and fellow blogger, JenbearDublin had a baby girl recently, I decided a new little girl deserves a new little baby cardigan. What I eventually came up with for her is Poolbeg. It is knit from the top down in one piece, with short rows at the neck line, and a slipped stitch raglan yoke. The pattern includes variations for short and long sleeves, and is sized up to 14 years.

Little baby É was even kind enough to model it for me, and she was a lovely model! You can see the slipped stitch pattern continues down the back of the sweater for a bit of visual interest. The pattern is available from Raverly, and the short sleeved sample is at my booth at the Knitting and Stitching Show (J52) until Sunday.
