I am a total sucker for my kids, especially when they come right out and ask for a hand knit! I designed the big kid version for my older daughter to wear with her holiday dress. I was inspired to resize it for babies when my niece arrived and needed something to keep her warm in the air conditioning.

PATTERN NOTES

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.
