Baby Vertebrae is a simple frontless sweater to keep little ones warm and snug, without getting messy.
Designed by Kelly van Niekerk of PEKAPEKA Design Studio.
Baby Vertebrae is a frontless cardy to keep your little one’s back and arms warm.
Baby Vertebrae is written for 3 yarn weights (4ply/fingering weight, 8ply/dk weight, and 10ply/light worsted weight), and to fit from birth (37.5cm chest) to 2years (52.5cm).
The pattern is seamlessly knit utilising the top down raglan shaping method.
To knit this pattern you will need to be able to knit flat, pick up stitches, then work small diameter circular knitting to complete the sleeves (magic loop or utilising DPNs)
Why choose a frontless cardy?
If you have ever been mama to a bub with reflux, a spilly babe, or even a messy eating 1year old, you will understand how frustrating it is to keep washing the dirty fronts of cardigans and sweaters.
The Baby Vertebrae is also excellent for baby wearing, and getting in some skin to skin cuddles with your newborn.
Augustbird yarn is super soft and perfect for wear against baby’s delicate skin.
One size approximately 155cm x 25cm (blocked). Size customisable.
