This lovely hand-knit cardigan will keep your little one cozy this fall and winter! I knit this sweater in one piece, in yarn the rich, warm color of red velvet cake. It's a deep, warm red with orange undertones. A wonderful outer layer over a turtleneck or T-shirt for cooler fall weather, and is great indoors for the winter months!

Since the sweater is knit in one piece, there are no seams to add bulk and press against your babe's tender skin. The neck, bottom edge and cuffs have rolled hems, and cables run along the edges of the 6-button placket.. Though this is a unisex sweater, it buttons as a "boy" sweater. I used a small piece of felt behind each button when stitching them on to create a more secure stitching surface. The buttons are hand-dyed and have slightly varying hues of cocoa brown.

Measurements, per standard sizing, will fit up to 18 month size:

Chest circumference- 25" (68.6 cm)
Sweater length, neck to bottom hem- 13" (33 cm)
Arm length from underam- 7" (17.8 cm)
Arm length from center back to cuff- 14" (35.6 cm)

The sweater is knit in thick, cushy acrylic for easy care, though the yarn has a slighty fuzzy "halo" to it. Machine wash on a cool, gentle cycle and dry flat or on a cool, gentle dryer cycle.
