Juvel, Swedish for ”jewel”, is a playful open front cardigan for wee boys and girls, worked top-down and completely seamless. The stockinette body is worked first, followed by contrasting ribbed edges, and finished off with cropped sleeves. Try the garment on as you go to easily adapt it to fit! Get ready to indulge in a quick, versatile and rewarding project that doesn’t require lots of time and yarn!
