The arrival of my landlord's wfirst child, gave me the perfect opportunity to complete my first top down ragland cardigan sweater on a small scale. I took two recommendations from my friend Diana by using "I Love this Yarn," which is Hobby Lobby's own brand and her go to baby sweater pattern.
"I Love this Yarn" is soft, inexpensive, and comes in a wide variety of colors. The sweater pattern, "Little Coffee Bean," can be found on Ravelry as a free download. Don't be intimidated by this stripped, top down pattern. You can find instructions on youtube.com to eliminate the jogs that you get as a result of knitting stripes in the round. If stripes aren't for you, you can do a solid or variegated yarn; it will still look great.
