Description from Knitty, Summer 2003:

Here is a child's cardigan pattern in many sizes and several design options, each cute and comfy. It is a unisex design despite the girliness of the model and garment here. Have fun selecting colors from the Mission Falls 1824 Cotton rainbow of softness to suit the personality of your lucky recipient!

The hood is very generously sized, so you may wish to test it on the intended head before finishing it. Hoodhaters may choose the neckband option. Snaps do the actual work of the front closure to give a neater front appearance, simplify the band construction, and make the on-off quicker and friendlier. But hey, if you want buttonholes, go right ahead and work 'em!
