As you may have gathered from Mona’s post yesterday, she’s been on a roll lately with this sweet little pattern for newborns. Puerperium Cardigan by Kelly Brooker is a simple top-down seamless crossover cardigan designed to make dressing little ones easy during the puerperium period (6 weeks after birth). Is it just us or have you also noticed how many pregnant ladies there are out there at the moment? We think there’s a pretty good chance someone in your life needs this little sweater right now. It takes just 200 m of DK weight yarn and knits up quickly. Be warned though, it also seems to be addictive so be prepared to knit more than one!

If you love this style but want a larger size, Beyond Puerperium, the extended version of the Puerperium Cardigan designed for ages birth to 2 years is now also available through Ravelry ($5.50).
