Description Rachel knit this cute cardigan for Heather's new baby. The pattern is called Gramps and it's by Tin Can Knits on Ravelry. The pattern can be purchased here: Gramps Cardigan. Rachel used Rowan Cashsoft DK which has now been discontinued, but says that Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino will work as well for a similar look. Keep in mind that with a DK you'll need to play with the needle sizes a bit to get gauge since the yarn is slightly finer. The pattern actually calls for Madelintosh Vintage, so pretty much any worsted weight yarn would work as well. She also used the cutest little sheep buttons she found at Hancock Fabrics. This cute cardigan is going to look adorable on Heather's little boy! We can't wait to see photos!
