A tiny cardigan that uses an adaptation of Barbara Walkers top-down, seamless, simultaneous set-in sleeve method. A great way to try this construction technique if you aren’t ready to commit to an adult sweater. It’s a bit simpler because there’s no need for short-row shaping of the shoulders. If you need any help, feel free to post in the help thread in my group.
