Hopp, meaning ”hope” in Swedish, originally available in adult sizes, is now also available in baby and child sizes!
The cardigan is worked top down, making it completely seamless, and features decorative lace along the back and at the end of the long sleeves. A crocheted button band is added when you’ve finished knitting the body.
It’s a definite eye catcher; time to show off!
(Psst! Buying the adult pattern automatically gives you a 50% discount on this pattern!)
