Dirghagama baby cardigan (free)

with 27 Comments

I wanted to make a cardigan that would be the perfect baby shower gift to give to anyone expecting a little girl. Originally made for the baby of a lovely lady, who studies the Dirgha Agama, this had to be the name of the pattern as well. This free pattern is only a size 6 months using bulky yarn. I have now made a new version using DK/8-ply weight yarn in sizes 3 months till 8 years, which you can get for €3.99 (approx. $5) from this link below.

Download this free version now

The pattern is now available for download on Ravelry. I am looking forward to seeing all your projects over there. From the download link you can access the pattern in English, Danish, Spanish and Portuguese. I would be very interested in hearing from you if you want to translate the pattern into a different language. Keep an eye on my Facebook page or Subscribe by email to my knitting updates for updates on different languages and new patterns coming soon. :-)

      Hi Robin,
      Thank you very much for offering :-)
      I think I have enough test-knitters for this pattern for now though. But I would love to see your version of it when it goes live.
      I am hoping to do more kid related patterns in the future, perhaps there might be something else there that you would like to test-knit too :-)
