#144 Three Flavor Delight Top-Down Cardigan
Knit gauge: 11 sts = 3” 7.5 cm and 16 = 3” 7.5 cm in St st.
(I find Malabrigo Worsted to be more of a heavy worsted/Aran weight yarn)
What could be better than a pretty little cardigan that will grow with the little girl who wears it?!
This cardigan is just the ticket! Its versatile A-line shape and top-down design will make it easily fit a child for longer than you’d think.
It features a nice garter stitch collar, and garter stitch front knit-in bands. Twisted stitch heart motifs run down the fronts, the largest embellishing the knit-in pockets that are great for little girls’ treasures.
A simple, but very pretty lace panel adds interest to the back.
And since this is knit from the top-down, the length and sleeves can easily be adjusted.
AND, it’s knit in Malabrigo Merino Worsted, a wonderfully soft yarn that is a joy to work with and comes in fabulous hand-dyed colors.
