I wanted to make my granddaughter a cardigan and thought a little girls version of Charisse would be perfect. The cardigan is a rounded yoke, top down construction worked in one piece. The yoke is decorated with a picot cast on, purl ridges with eyelets that have a knot stitch worked in the rows between them. Raglan increases are worked to shape the bodice. There is no body shaping past the armholes. It has a velvet ribbon sewed to the button band and pretty purl buttons to add the perfect feminine touch to a lovely cardigan. I used Sweet Paprika Minuet for the sample. It is a nice soft superwash merino, perfect for little ones. It comes in many wonderful colors. Check out Sweet Paprika here.

Notes:
This rounded yoke cardigan is constructed from the top down in one piece with raglan increases to shape the bodice. The body length and sleeve can be easily adjusted. If you add waist shaping, make sure you end up with an odd number of stitches for the ribbed band.
