A small, cardigan version of our Olive Sweater for adults, Olive Cardigan is designed for little ones, and comes in 6 sizes (1 to 8 years of age). The Olive Cardigan uses 2 strands of Silk Mohair, and 1 strand of one of our fingering-weight yarns worked together, to create a soft, cloud-like garment. Body and sleeves are worked separately and knit from the bottom up in an allover lace pattern, and then joined at armhole. Raglan decreases in lace pattern shape the shoulders, and a ribbed neckband finishes the cardigan.

Stitch patterns are charted only.
