A simple yoked cardigan gets a pop of color through the use of slip-stitch patterning. Knit in one piece from the top down and requiring minimal finishing, this piece comes together quickly and is sure to brighten up the wardrobe of any baby, toddler, or young child. In sportweight cotton, the finished garment is easy to care for and a great transitional piece for spring. Unlike stranded knitting, the slip-stitch technique does not require handling two strands of yarn at once as only a single color of yarn is used in any of the rows.

A note about the pattern files

This pattern comes in two different formats, “tables” and “traditional”:

The “tables” format is provided as an alternative to the traditional small (large, larger) format of writing instructions for different sizes. In this file, a point with different numbers for each size is written as a blank followed by a letter, such as _____(A). Tables are provided at the end of the pattern with numbers for each size/letter combination. Find your size at the top of the table, go down the column until you get to the row with the required number, and fill this value into the blank. This version of the pattern is 4 pages in length.

The “traditional” format follows more conventional formatting of writing instructions, numbers for all sizes are contained within the pattern text. This version of the pattern is 3 pages in length.

Each PDF contains all the charts and directions needed and is a self-contained unit. Simply pick the format that is most appealing to you.
