Here is the baby to toddler version of the popular Mi Escuelita pattern. Because kids of all ages should look stylish and smart on their way to day care or school!
This cardigan was knit in Knit Picks Comfy yarn, and comfy it is. It was an extreme pleasure to knit with this yarn as it glides so smoothly through your fingers. The cables pop and the color is gorgeous. It blocks nicely and wears great.
