A seamless raglan cardigan knit from the top-down using worsted weight yarn, Wonder Years toddler/child cardigan is inspired by my “Little Coffee Bean” baby cardigan but sized for older children (from 2T-10 years).

The only finishing required is picking up stitches along the front edges for the button bands. Highly customizable, you can make this cardigan longer, shorter, short or long-sleeved, buttons all the way down or simply one or two buttons at the top.
