Gidday Baby by Georgie Hallam is a lovely and simple cardigan that combines a striped garter stitch circular yoke with a stocking stitch body.  A few well-chosen buttons add interest and bring the whole look together.  Knit seamlessly from the top down, this pattern provides a perfect template for showing off both beautiful and more practical DK weight yarns.  Or why not use a soft and beautiful hand-dyed gem from your stash at the yoke and cuffs in combination with something else for the body and sleeves? A series of blog posts (links found on the Ravelry project page) complement the pattern with useful tips and guidance.  A satisfying project for both beginner and advanced knitters!
