Good things take time, right? That’s why I keep telling myself at least. Three, maybe four, years ago, I had a designey-idea: knit a chunky cardigan that would fit under my winter coat. Easy huh?

The new, improved version of the Seed Bubble Sweater.

This tiny little striped baby jumper, inspired by the effortlessly chic Breton knits, is fun to knit for your little one or as a little gift. Fastened at the shoulder with some snap domes, and with enough room to move in and grow into, this is sure to be a firm fave.
