Want a matching mini-sweater? Check out the Little Right as Rainbow.

This pattern has been completely updated to include neck shaping, new charts, diagrams, photos, tables and edited waist shaping for a better fitting sweater.

SIMPLE and FAST, this cardigan is knit from the bottom up. BONUS: This sweater includes everyone’s favorite accessory: Geometry! Don’t worry. You won’t have to do any math (I did it for you), but when you finish the cardigan, you can enjoy a fabulous rainbow nonagon. Tell me: who doesn’t love a nonagon?

P.S. This pattern includes waist shaping to highlight your own fabulous geometry
