Manolin was the Young Boy in the story The Old Man and The Sea.
I designed The Old Man & The Sea as an adult knit, and reworked it for girls.
The pattern includes different options to knit this cardigan as well as links to aid you in your knitting.

Manolin is a fast and fun knit that gives you enough to keep busy…but not too much so you can’t enjoy the peace of sitting and just watching the Sea!

Manolin starts at the bottom of the cardigan and easily works up until joining the sleeves and decreasing easily in a simple, pretty raglan style.
