I am a total sucker for my kids, especially when they come right out and ask for a hand knit! I designed this sweater for my older daughter. She hasn’t worn a dress in about 5 years, so when she found a darling dress she wanted to wear for the holidays AND asked me to knit her a bolero to wear with it, I couldn’t get my credit card out of my wallet fast enough. My younger daughter chose the OXO cable, because she knows there is love in every stitch!

Cardigan is worked from top down on circular needles using the contiguous sleeve method developed by Susie Meyers. The front and neck band is picked up to complete garment. You will be performing shoulder and armhole increases at the same time as the front shaping, so make sure to read all the instructions first and keep careful track of where you are in the pattern.
