TINY Tea Leaves Cardi by Melissa LaBarre
Child's 6
Needles & yarn
US 6 - 4.0 mm
US 7 - 4.5 mm
Araucania Nature Wool Solids
2 skeins = 484.0 yards (442.6 meters), 200 grams

I probably should have alternated skeins from the start as my second skein was much lighter. Oh well, what can you do! I still love the color and the style so I don’t care too much. I made the sleeves shorter (knit to 6” rather than 10” before adding garter cuffs) and the sweater used exactly two skeins of Nature Wool.

There are a couple errors in the numbers for size 6 when separating for the sleeves. If worked as written, you’ll end up with two extra stitches. I incorporated these into the back section, so rather than 60 back sts I had 62. Also the number of stitches to cast on at the second underarm is omitted. You will want to cast on 7, just like at the first underarm.

I looked through the other sizes and it looks like this is only a problem for size 6.
