This seamless cardigan is a classic child’s sweater, with a gender-neutral design paired with timeless cables. For minimal finishing, the cabled button and buttonhole bands are worked at the same time as the rest of the garment. The body is worked flat, in one piece from the bottom up to the armholes. Sleeves are worked in the round from the cuff up and joined with the body for raglan shaping to the neckband. The open, generous hood is worked seamlessly as an extension of the body from the neck up, using short rows to shape the top.
