Pattern description from One Skein: “I love color and I love creating asymmetrical designs. The two come together in this unisex color-block cardigan sized for toddlers to ten-year-olds. In this version, I’ve used different colors of the same chunky yarn (one ball of each color), but it would also be fun to combine different yarn types - try fuzzy with smooth or variegated with solid.”
