The Petal Pea Cardigan is a sweet little cardigan for babies who need a little extra zing in their wardrobe. Like a pea coat, the front panels overlap to give your little squish some added warmth and grown-up style. Knit from the bottom up and in garter stitch, this cardigan is fun and fast. With the raglan yoke, the petal pea cardigan only has 1 inch of seaming. There is even an option for a hidden button to keep your kiddo looking neat and tidy.
