Designed by Leeana Gardiner of Whirlsie's Designs

Since the release of the original Ding and its matching Beanie (in 4 ply), I have had many requests for one in a 10 ply. This option includes sizing up to 6 years! 

This simple yet charming baby cardigan is composed primarily of stocking stitch with a sweet eyelet border. The curved edges of the front adds a unique touch to the typical baby cardigan with the overlap and eyelets allowing you to place buttons wherever you like, or not at all! Striping the stocking stitch of the body is another decorative option.

 Pair with the Ding-er Beanie for a sweet baby set!
