Win the baby shower! This hooded cardi project by Melissa LaBarre is as show-stopping as it is practical. Two skeins of supersoft, washable Manos Alegria fingering-weight yarn make any size from 0-6 months to 18-24 months. The cardi is knit from the neck down, then stitches are picked up for the hood and worked upward. A great first garment pattern!
