GuduGudu is a top down seamless raglan cardigan suitable for both boys and girls. Rolled up sleeves look stylish in this reversible fabric. The stretchiness of ribbing combined with rolled up sleeves give this cardigan plenty of growing room.

The unusual combination of yarn weight and needle size is due to the non-resiliency of the yarn. If you substitute yarn be sure to check your gauge and adjust needle size if necessary.

A distinctive feature of this cardigan is the short row collar. It curves nicely around the neckline. The collar is worked from the top down in one piece instead of being picked up at the end, so that it is incredibly stretchy and comfortable.

This cardigan was named by my toddler. GuduGudu means button and this cardigan has lots of them. He chose the lovely gray buttons himself.
