Right around the time I started working on my Coolbreeze Cardigan, we found out the super exciting news that I was expecting our first baby. Colour me excited! What is a knitter to do when she gets news of a baby but cast on for a baby sweater? When I finished my ladies cardigan I wasn’t quite through with the stunning blue chevron gradient palette that I was working with, so I decided that my baby’s first sweater would be a mini-me version of my newest design; and the Coolbreeze Baby Caridgan was born!
