Every child needs a few cover-up cardies. Carousel, the little sister to Summer Carnival, is reminiscent of ferris wheels, carousels and all things fun and festive.

Knit top-down and seamlessly, this lightweight cardigan is reminiscent of a cropped 50s style bolero perfect for slipping over a sundress.The construction is a slight twist on the traditional raglan cardigan. It features a simple but cute circular lace motif in the brooch position and running down one side of the body. This circular motif evokes images of katherine wheels and ferris wheels, such distinctly Summer memories.

Note: the side lace panel is only worked on the larger sizes.

Both charts and instructions are included for the lace sections.

NOTE: Carousel is part of a series of four related patterns available separately or as part of an ebook.

The related pattern Ferris Wheel is a longer line version of this cardie with pockets and additional lace features. The bodice and sleeves are worked slightly differently in each of these patterns to cater for the different fit and ease in the different style of sleeves.

The final two patterns are adult versions of these two patterns; Summer Carnival and Summer Festival.

If you wish to purchase just the two child patterns, a discount will automatically be applied to Ferris Wheel when you check it out.
