LITTLE LOVE is the short version of the Long Love cardigan.
If you purchase both patterns (or bought the other one previously) you will receive 50% off the second one.

LITTLE LOVE is the fingering weight version of the Big Love cardigan you’ve asked for :). With a slightly different stitch pattern (a cute lace pattern) to highlight the texture in the thinner yarn.

It is worked seamlessly from the top-down. Start working the collar separately. You first pick up and then CO sts for the back and shape the back neck with short rows. Continue to work the back for the length of the armhole. Pick up the stitches for the front and collar and work both fronts symmetrically for the length of the armhole. Join back and fronts to work the body in stitch pattern down to the bottom ribbing. Pick up the sleeve sts to work the sleeves in rounds in stitch pattern.
