WIP: Cabled Raglan Baby Sweater

When I saw this free pattern (if the link doesn’t work, see the second “update” below) on Knitting Daily, I liked it instantly and I knew I just had to make it for the niece-to-be. Here’s my version of “Cabled Raglan Baby Sweater” by Rebecca L. Daniels:

Cabled Raglan Baby Sweater WIP

My version is worked with heather Suss Love (I’ve sung the praises of this yarn before) on size 5 needles. I made the sleeves a bit longer than the pattern called for and used seed stitch for the edging instead of garter stitch. Seed stitch is probably my favorite simple edging. This change caused some minor glitches at the neckline, but I’m hoping those will be covered up by the button. I’m thinking a shell button would look rather elegant.

Bonus: the raglan, top-down shaping means no seaming! Sweet.

Update 01/25/11: Sadly, Suss Love yarn has now been discontinued.

Update 07/05/15: I’ve been informed that the link to the free pattern for the “Cabled Raglan Baby Sweater” doesn’t work anymore and I’ve searched all over Ravelry and the Interweave Knits sites and couldn’t find a copy. Click here for a pdf copy of “7 Free Baby Knitting Patterns from Interweave Knits” that includes this pattern.

      1. Thanks for stopping by my blog, and sorry it’s taken me so long to get back to you. Yes, it’s very frustrating that the link doesn’t work anymore.

        If you look at the second update to this post (above), you’ll see a link to the pdf that contains this pattern.

        Have fun knitting this pattern — it’s a fun knit and the results are beautiful. It’s too bad the pattern isn’t more accessible.
