Back before I knew Lucas was Lucas I made this little cardigan.  I love it so much that I decided to make another.

Pattern: Scrappy Socky Stripey Cardi by Fawn Pea
Yarn:  Needle Food Merino Blend, 4ply in Blueberry Crush
Needles:  3.5mm and 3.75mm Knitpick Options Interchangeable Circulars

I made some changes from the last one.  I used the 3.5mm needles for the body which is knit flat, and switched to 3.75mm for the sleeves because they are knit in the round and my gauge changes dramatically.  I also knit ten rows of garter stitch for the button band so I had some more room for bigger buttons.

I think this has become my go-to newborn cardigan pattern.
