Puerperium Cardigan by Kelly Brooker

Puerperium is a very simply styled cardy, designed to be easy for new parents to dress their babe in the puerperium period (6 weeks post birth).

The pattern is top-down seamless in construction, and offers a wonderful blank canvas should one decide to embellish.

This free version is written for 8ply/DK weight yarn, and to fit a newborn babe, approx 3-4kg (7-9lb) in weight, with an approx chest circumference of 37.5cm.

Pattern has instructions for straight knit sleeves, and tailored tapered sleeves.
