Girly Pink, Spring!
Girly Pink Spring is a girly version of adult Spring is Pink cardigan.
It is a classically shaped cardigan knit seamlessly from the top down with simultaneously set in sleeves.
As with most of my cardigans, Girly Pink Spring is knit top down, completely seamlessly with set in sleeves knitted simultaneously with the body. First, you knit a few rows of the back, then carefully pick up the provisional cast on stitches at the shoulders and work a few rows of each front. At that point you pick up stitches along the tops of the armholes, and then join all pieces together to work the front, sleeves, and back simultaneously. The armholes are shaped with increases as you continue knitting down. All the upper sections are worked simultaneously until it is time to separate the sleeves stitches from the body, then you work body and sleeves independently.
Sizes: 6 (12, 18) months 2 (4, 6, 8, 10) years
The cardigan is meant to be worn with 0–1 inch 0–2.5 cm of positive ease.
Gauge: 24 sts and 30 rows per 4” 10cm in stockinette stitch after blocking; 28 sts and 28 rows per 4” 10cm in the Daisy Stitch pattern – on the larger needles.
