After the positive response of my ladies’ version, Reid Cardigan, I was encouraged to create a girls’ pattern. This pattern was especially perfect to emulate for girls, because of its slight A-line shape. The shape adds a little flair and what we really love: it works well over skirts and dresses! The yarn used for the pattern is soft with a lofty feel. I found the unique blend a pleasure to knit with and the finished product is truly beautiful.
