This is a simple cardigan for summer in 6 sizes for baby to age 7. As with most of my designs it is seamless and knit top down - however this cardigan employs the contiguous method of adding sleeves developed by Susie Myers. With a smocking section added for interest, it is a fun and easy knit for intermediate or even adventurous beginners.

The pattern explains the techniques employed in detail.

You will need:
100 - 250g of double knitting yarn - Rowan Cotton Wool used here.
4mm circular needle
4 - 8 small buttons
tapestry needle

This cardigan looks great in cotton for summer days and is also a great extra layer for cooler days if knit in wool.
