Baby Bandit sweater kit

Toad Hall
Autumn Light

A gift knitting kit for new babies (and toddlers too)

The Baby Bandit cardigan is designed for babies & children by Jacqueline Cieslak, one of my favorite sweater designers, as part of a special collection she and I created for you.

About the sweater

This adorable baby cardigan is inspired by Beatrix Potter’s timeless illustrations, with subtle gathers around the collar and cuffs and named for Peter Rabbit, the daring childhood hero who knew how to claim a carrot that was rightfully his. With a seamless yoked top-down construction knit mostly in stockinette and unique folded hems for the collar and cuffs, this small sweater is a perfect heirloom gift for any new baby (or toddler, if you want to gift a size that might get a bit more wear than a newborn size).

For newborns to 4-year-olds

This kit will delight you, the knitter, and your gift recipient. It has absolutely everything you need to make the sweater from newborn to 4-year-old sizes, complete with materials for unique fine finishing.

Your kit includes:

  • 2 skeins of yarn | Harvest Sport
  • 6 buttons | Merchant & Mills 15mm brass
  • Button band facing | Liberty of London fabric and interfacing
  • Satin label that says "You are loved" with my own hand-drawn illustration
  • Printed copy of the Bandit pattern booklet + Ravelry code
  • Beatrix Potter's tiny book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, to gift with the finished sweater
  • Reusable packing | the packaging your kit comes to you can be re-used to gift the sweater: a sturdy cardboard box, neutral-colored tissue paper, and a gingham ribbon
