Fiachra baby and toddler aran cardigan knitting pattern
This is a written (not chart) knitting pattern, which will be sent to your e-mail address upon order. Look out for an e-mail from firstname.lastname@example.org in your junk folder, just in case! As it's just me at the other end of this account, please allow up to several hours (as in overnight) for it to arrive, although most people do get their patterns pretty promptly.
This is a sweet baby cardigan, ideal for the new little boy or girl in your life. It looks good in pastels or strong colours. The front bands are made separately, so you can knit the cardigan before the baby arrives and sew the bands on at the last minute – unless you already know the gender, of course. Fiachra is pronounced fee-ack-rah, and means “raven,” although some sources state the meaning to be “saint.”

To keep postage costs down for the buyer, I ship by the most economical method - unless the buyer is in a rush, then I will find the expedient way.
I ship from Canada, and small packages must fit through a slot at the post office in order to qualify for reasonable postage rates. For example, a pair of earrings in a small jewellery box will cost four times the postage as the same pair wrapped securely in bubble wrap and tissue paper - even if both packages weigh the same. For this reason, I will not use jewellery boxes when shipping.
Unless something is damaged in shipping, I will not do returns nor exchanges.
