Sleeveless baby cardigans are a great thing. Not only are they as cute as cute can be, but they are a platform for your imagination to run wild. At the same time, they can also be a classic touch for your child to have that retro/vintage look. Can you just imagine your little bundle of joy in a classic sleeveless cardi in a traditional bassinet pram? Wonderful! Here are some patterns to get you started.

Here is a slightly more modern, somewhat hippy-trippy set. This is also a beautiful pattern, with lovely loose stitching that will keep baby warm, but not overheating. I like this one a lot.

So, you want to make a baby cardi, but also want to get a bit fancy, eh? No worries, this one has you… and your baby covered. The layered zig-zagging chevrons are a beautiful way of achieving a layered, almost 3D effect, and give you tons of room to play with colors and yarn thicknesses. Enjoy!

    Beautiful patterns; Thank you for sharing.

  2. For the Emmy cardigan pattern: I don’t recommend this pattern, it looks cute but the frustration of going through this pattern was awful. Multiple people have commented on the original pattern saying that the numbers aren’t correct and the author hasn’t fixed the pattern. The incorrect pattern is not easily fixed either, resulting in an asymmetric sweater
