Playtime Cardigan

It's the time of year for afternoon walks and trips to the playground, but it's not quite warm enough for your little one to enjoy the great outdoors without a little something warm and woolly! 

Playtime, a stripe-tastic garter stitch cardigan by Lori Versaci, is an excellent option for lightweight layering and a fun way to play with color! We knit the body of our sample in Fibre Co. Amble and the colorwork yoke in Amble Mini skeins

Amble's nature-inspired palette is full of depth, with lots of unexpected color options for baby garments and accessories. Its blend of merino, alpaca, and nylon is also consciously eco-friendly.

 

Each 355-yard skein of fingering weight Amble is comprised of 70% merino, 20% alpaca, and 10% nylon, which knits up into a machine washable, buttery-soft fabric that's perfect for next-to-skin wear. 

What makes Amble different from everyday superwash yarn? For starters, it features recycled nylon for added, eco-conscious durability. It also achieves its superwash status by using a patented Easy-Wash method that's chlorine- and AOX-free to help make the yarn resiliently machine washable. 

The resulting yarn is sumptuously soft and perfectly easy-care for baby (and you!), just pop your knits into a cold, gentle cycle and lay flat to dry.

The Playtime pattern gives options for both a solid sweater + a version with a striped yoke. The striped pattern suggests 5 colors, but we chose 3 for our sample pattern. And the pattern is written for 4 sizes spanning 3-18 months.
