Saffran cardigan is a perfect winter and holiday cardigan, the colour work is not only beautiful but also gives extra warmth to the cardigan. The small sizes of the pattern includes pattern pieces for a lining that you can sew and hand stitch in place, perfect to prevent tiny fingers from getting tangled and makes dressing easier.
Saffran is knit in the round from the bottom up in one piece and then steeked open, the pattern include instructions for this so there is no need to be frightened of that step. The yoke has raglan shaping and neck shaping made by short rows, it goes up high in the neck to keep the child warm all the way up.
