The 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. Pattern has instructions for straight knit sleeves, and tailored tapered sleeves.
This free version is written for 8ply/DK weight yarn, and to fit a newborn babe, approximately 7-9lb in weight, with an approximate chest circumference of 37.5cm.
We recommend knitting this cardigan in either Rowan's Purelife Organic Cotton, Stylecraft Wondersoft Pearl DK or Cascade's Baby Cherub. All of these fibers are available at the boutique and in a soft palette of colors to wrap your babe in.
