Cute little girls deserve cute little sweaters. This top-down cardigan is a fun-loving cardigan that is a joy to make and give!

It features a delicate collar, knit-in button bands, and girly ruffled edges, all worked in a simple moss stitch. A moss stitch border also accentuates the bodice. Pretty heart-shaped lace panels decorate the fronts, along with 2 knit-in pockets.

Because it’s top-down, you can absolutely play with the length of the sleeves and the body! Would look great with short sleeves, without the ruffled sleeve edgings (if you prefer), or longer overall. This sample was made for my 4-year old, but also looks great on her big 6-year old sister (more of a ¾-sleeve length style on her). How’s that for a kid’s knit that will be wearable for years!

Easy care, washable wool from Knit Picks in a sunny color (sorry - this particular color got discontinued, but there are many more shades to choose from!).

PLUS, this pattern includes sizes from 2 through 16!
