This is my first attempt at making my own pattern for anything more complicated that a tea cozy. (Even this wasn’t complicated).
It’s for a friend’s baby – a cap-sleeved cardigan in apple-green 4ply baby wool.





...and matching pair of Saartje’s booties. The pattern is available here http://members.home.nl/tdpj/Patronen/Bootees/Saartjes%20bootees.pdf

That's really cute, I love the style and the colour.  I'm just curious is it intended for a baby or known gender or not?  (I always like to know what people do as gender neutral because I know my definition of gender neutral is very different than most people's Wink )

Hey, it's for a girl. I'm really not into pink and the whole "pink for girls, blue for boys" thing, and I'm pretty sure my friend (the baby's mother) isn't either.

Funny thing though, if it was for a boy, I'd have used the same colour, but probably wouldn't have made cap sleeves and wouldn't have used lace stitches. Unfortunately I think my idea of "gender neutral" means something that is suitible for a boy, but could be worn by a girl - which isn't actually gender neutral at all.

Thanks for responding knitpurl, I run into the same problem when trying to make baby clothes gender neutral.

What great pattern improv! The lace pattern works really well and I love the contrast striping in the button band! Smiley

Good job on the pattern!  That cardigan is adorable; any mother would be happy to receive that for their baby!
