PATTERN
This classic infant sweater will be treasured for future generations to come. The yoke of this cardigan has a cable and seed stitch pattern. I have seen it knit in untraditional infant colors and it was spectacular. Pattern included for matching hat. The easy to follow pattern includes:
• Schematic for each piece
• A helpful tracking sheet
• Diagrams and full explanations for techniques
• A link for substitute yarn
• A pattern helpline
