A sweet little cardigan or coat for your little one. Perfect for fall.

This Cardigan is knit from the top down beginning with the collar. Once the collar is finished, the front and back pieces are worked separately until they are rejoined past the armholes. A garter stitch button-band is worked simultaneously.

The sleeves can be worked in one of two ways: Stitches can be picked up around the armholes with short-row shaping for the sleeve caps, or they can be knit from the top down separately and seamed to the body. Directions are provided for both methods.

Directions for the cable panel are both charted and written.
