One day, my daughter sat beside me and asked me many questions about what I do. I showed her a sketch I had drawn of a girl’s cardigan, and told her how I would go about turning it into a knitted garment. I showed her some options for cuffs, neckline, decoration, and she carefully helped me choose. Designing this sweet little cardigan became a cherished memory for me. I hope the little one you’re making this for gives you many special moments too.
