Debbie Bliss ribbed cardigan

Pattern: "Ribbon Edged Cardigan" from Special Knits by Debbie Bliss.
Yarn: Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino, peach, 2 skeins.
Needle: 3.25mm

I love knitting children's clothes because they are so cute and quick to knit. This one in particular was a very simple and quick knit. I love the ribbed pattern, simple but pretty.

The baby cashmerino was just a dream to knit up with. I will definately be using this yarn again. Its soft, doesn't pile, doesn't split and feels very cosy. I'm not sure how it washes up though.

Beautiful! I love the simple rib pattern; it's just interesting enough without being fussy. I have to agree with you that DB baby cashmerino is heavenly to knit with.

This is gorgeous - I love the rib pattern! I'm in the middle of a DB baby cashmerino jacket at the mo - and it's heaven to knit with - did you find you got uneven stitches because of the ply? (I've tried to see from the pic, but it doesn't look like it) - still, I've decided that it's a "feature", and I like it :-)

Thank you all for your lovely comments.
Anne, I found the baby cash just a dream to knit with, and no, I didn't find any problem with uneven stitches, I didn't even think that yarn split. Maybe you've got a bad batch, I hope it doesn't put you off using it again.
