This top down, raglan cardigan is an ideal unisex toddler sweater. Designed for a child on the go, the snug fit of the cuffs ensures a good fit for the sleeves. Worn buttoned up or open, the cable patterns and increases keep the interest of the knitter, while the striping allows you to pick the perfect color ways for the recipient.
Cowl is worked in a tube with ends joined together post-blocking to create a loop. The cowl is easy to make longer for a larger loop by adding more reps to the chart, but more yarn will be needed if any adjustments are made. Almost every bit of yarn was used for the written size, so if you are a loose knitter you may need 2 hanks of each color.
A great way to learn to knit in the round, make something cozy and quick or use up that random ball of worsted in your stash, this cowl is simple and elegant. If you’re sick of old fashioned ribbing and want something different and more fun, this is the cowl for you!

Inspired by Gar Sawtelle, the father in David Wroblewski’s novel The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, this hat works well for both men and women. Gar and his family lived on a working farm in Wisconsin breeding Sawtelle dogs and when reading the novel, I pictured him outside shoveling snow or raking leaves wearing a comfortable ribbed hat.
