Round up of beautiful projects for babies and kids: Hyphen cardigan

When I released my Hyphen knitting pattern 9 months ago, I had no idea that it would quickly become one of my best-sellers. Many knitters have since then made adorable versions of this quick and practical cardigan for lucky babies and children.

I think there's something about the design that really allows knitters to make it their own. The textured yoke can be either a subtle, sophisticated touch that elevates a simple cardigan, or it can really make a statement. The whole cardigan can also serve as a great canvas for some serious creativity. These projects are a few of my favorites, made by very talented knitters (photos used with permission):

By the way, did you know that there is now a grown-up version now as well? It's called Em Dash, which, in case you are wondering, is a large hyphen... Get it? ;)

Did you make a Hyphen? What is your favorite thing about it? If you have a blog, please give us the link to your project so everybody can see!

 

 

 

Hyphen

I am so grateful for the unbelievable response you guys have given my newest release, Hyphen!

As always I was trying to come up with an effective, practical, well-fitting design that was free of fiddly techniques and potential headaches. The circular yoke is worked seamlessly from the top down in worsted weight (I used Malabrigo Rios) so it's a breeze to complete. The button bands are worked as you go, too. The textured stitch is incredibly easy and fun to knit, and it make semi-solid colorways really shine:

The result is a very comfy everyday cardigan that works for babies as well as bigger kids. It's distinctive-looking in an understated way, and it's gender-neutral, too, so it's the perfect gift for any baby shower. The sizes go from 3mo to 8yo.

If you're thinking you'd like one in your size, you'll be pleased to know that I'm working on a grown-up version! If you'd like to make sure you don't miss its release (or any of my new pattern releases) you can sign up to my newsletter (the sign-up form is in the right sidebar) and you'll be notified right away.

I've decided to host a knitalong for it in my Ravelry group, Club Frogginette, as well as on Instagram. It's started already but feel free to join, there's still plenty of time until May 20th. To participate either join my group or follow me on Instagram (I'm Frogginette on there too) and make sure you use the tag or hashtag "HyphenKAL" so everybody can see your progress! I will select 5 winners from the pool of finished, tagged projects, and those winners will receive a prize!
