A glance back in time can provide all the inspiration we need to clothe our wee girls.
This pattern has a pretty garter yoke, combined with delicate lace fronts, to create a vintage feel cardigan

My Aunt Doris - Sport comes written in 16 sizes (from small newborn to approximately 10 years of age), and is written for 5ply/Sport weight yarn.

My Aunt Doris has you cast on at the neckline, and work flat forming a rounded garter neck line, before working the lacework fronts, until you reach the required chest size.
From here the arm stitches are put on to waste yarn (or a stitch holder), and the body finished. Once the body is completed, the sleeve stitches are returned to the needles and short sleeves worked in the round, with wee gathers on the upper arm.
