Abernathy Cardigan is a sweet little unisex cardi that is worked from the top down, seamlessly, with an eyelet yoked collar. With a stockinette stitch body & garter stitch hem, front bands, cuffs and collar, it is simple enough to show off variegated yarns nicely. Four buttonholes are worked, beginning at the top right band and more can be added, if desired. Generous ease, 2-3” (5-7.5cm), allows this to be a wonderful layering piece that is light and soft; perfect for wee babes and little ones alike!
