This pattern includes designs for a square-bordered and a floral-bordered all-over Fairisle-patterned child’s cardigan. There are charts for all the fairisle patterns, which are very simple, but many and varied.

4.5mm and 5mm needles were needed when using Texere acrylic DK. This design uses six different coloured yarns, and the square-bordered version used 10 x 50g of the Texere yarn.
