Laxå is a cardigan inspired by vintage clothing but with a modern construction. The cardigan is knitted from the bottom up with a round dotted yoke. You knit the body in one piece back and forth until you reach the underarm, where you divide the work in back and fronts. Three sets of short rows are made over the back to raise the yoke for a more comfortable fit of the neckline. The sleeves are knitted in the round until you reach the underarm sleeve length. Thereafter, you continue to work the sleeves and the body in one piece. You start with raglan decreases and continue with a round yoke with decreases to shape the top of the cardigan. The dotted yoke is knitted with slipped stitches, meaning that only one colour is worked at a time.

The pattern is written for sizes 9 months–1 year, 1.5–2 years, 3–5 years, 6–7 years and 8–9 years.
