A vintage knitting pattern for V necked and Button to Neck babies' cardigans.
The pattern is by Marriner number 1981.
It was originally designed for Acrylic and Nylon Double Knitting yarn. It should knit up in Acrylic or Wool. Knit a tension square first to see whether you need to adjust the needle size.
For both cardigans you will need the following:
Size 45.5 and 51 cm chest: 5 x 25 g balls
Size 56 cm chest: 6 x 25 g balls
V neck cardigan: 4 buttons
Button up Cardigan: 6 buttons
1 pair needles each 3 mm and 3.75 mm ( UK sizes 11 and 9)
The V necked cardigan is knitted with a 1 x 1 rib and stocking stitch.
The Button up Cardigan is knitted in 1x1 rib and a simple repeated pattern using slip stitches and passing the slipped stitches over.
This is a useful multi size pattern.
