Mabel - Free Pattern
Designed by Fiona Alice
We are so proud to present a pattern by Fiona Alice in collaboration with Susan Cropper of Loop London. Susan wanted to offer a baby pattern knit in this wonderful new yarn and had been knitting a version of Mairlynd’s Moonraker Shawl – she was completely smitten with the cluster stitches used in that pattern and thought it would make a natural lovely yoke for a cardigan. With a few sketches back and forth between the two, Fiona set her skills to work.
The result is a sweet baby cardigan that's soft and easy to wear and written for ages up to 4 years.
There is a great video tutorial on our blog at LoopKnitLounge.com on how to do the stitch used in the yoke and details in this beautiful pattern.
Pictured in the photographs is the La Bien Aimée Merino DK in Madeleine for the main colour and Fauna for the contrast colour in the yoke and edging.
Yellow version is knit with La Bien Aimée Merino DK in Yellow Brick Road and Loam
