Grow With Me Child's Cardigan
Ready to knit a garment that can be worn by the same child for more than just one year? This cute cardigan has button-on borders at the wrists and bottom edge, as well as two lines of buttonholes down the front. As the child grows, simply move the borders to the lower buttons, and use the second row of buttonholes to close the front.
