Beginners need patterns like this to give them a sense of accomplishment. At the end of a project when you have a finished item that can be used always gives me a great sense of pride. Gifting this to a young mother will likely give anyone goosebumps especially when you see the smile on her face knowing you took the time to make it yourself.

I have twin grandsons so this us a great pattern for me. I have to make two of everything so a quick, easy project is perfect. They are 18 months old now but I am going to make it in the 24 month size and give it to them for Christmas. I want to do it in navy blue with white trim.

This baby cardigan puts me in the mind of the baby shirts of long ago. I believe my grandmother called them diaper shirts. This is just a little step up and very adorable.

The cardigan is cute. It is a beginner pattern and looks like a beginner project. The instructions are very easy to follow and this would indeed be a very easy pattern to make. I think that the yarn chosen for this is too bulky and thick and would look much nicer if worked with a tighter stitch and lighter yarn.

What a perfect little Summer cardigan, for that favorite little one in your life. I am going to make it in the 24 month size for my great grand niece. I think it will be the perfect little accessory for an air conditioned environment. I don't know how beginner" this pattern is. It references a basic shaping method which is no problem for us "old timers", but it is not explained. The stitches are easy enough, I would give it a try. It will be worth the effort.

Loving the vintage granny square, this super cute baby sweater speaks to me. It is made with the same stitch idea and just modified it for apparel. I like the lightweight yarn that is used, too. Often times I pick a variegated yarn or ombre yarn for baby sweaters, so this one will be a little different for me in that it's got a main color and a pop of color on the borders.
