Discontinued. This digital pattern is no longer available online.

ERRATA: Someone has noticed a mistake in the increase row instructions. You knit to 2 sts before marker, then knit into front & back of one stitch, then KNIT ONE (this is missing from the pattern instructions), slip marker, knit into front & back of next stitch.

A top-down, seamless cardigan, great for using up small bits of worsted weight yarn. Make your own unique colorway, and clad a child in creative stripes.

Pattern is written in two sizes, which are a child’s small and medium, for about a 2-year-old and 4-5-year-old, respectively.

However, a top-down raglan sweater can be sized to fit anyone, since it can be tried on as you knit. Cast on (your gauge x desired measure of collar) and knit until the raglan increase line is long enough to be a comfortable armhole. After dividing sleeves and body, knit them to the desired length.
