Mildred is available in the Kelbourne Woolens Baby Collection and also as an individual PDF download.
Mildred is worked in the round and divided at the armholes. The fronts and back are worked back and forth to the shoulders. In order to hide the jog that occurs when working garter stitch in the round, the end of round is placed at the center front right before the cable.
