FRENCH MACAROON, AN EASY SWEATER FOR BABIES AND TODDLERS
Few things in life taste as delicious as French macaroons! They are so colorful, so delicate, and so easy to eat. Our new free knitting pattern, French Macaroon is equally delicious, colorful, and so easy to make, you might no be able to stop at just one! It is available as a free Ravelry download.
Our French Macaroons are knitted in Cascade's Ultra Pima, a 100% pima cotton yarn made in Peru. Ultra pima is soft, with a smooth silky sheen, and because it is a dk, knits up in no time. The cotton makes this a perfect sweater for sensitive baby and toddler skins.
The sweater has a very simple construction, with a graceful boat neck, and button closure in the back to make dressing baby easy. The sweater is knit entirely in garter stitch. The fun colors do all the work for you. The front is knit in one piece, and attached to the one piece back at the shoulders with a three needle bind off. Two tiny seams takes care of the sides and underarms. (We have included links to videos in our pattern to help you along the way!) Our instructions are simple and clear, and go from newborn to size 4 years.
Ultra Pima comes in a wonderful range of delicious, cheerful colors, which will make it hard to resist the temptation to make another little macaroon! Here is a sampling of cheerful colors. We carry 17 delicious colors in the shop.
