I love preppy-style clothing on small children, and cardigans make a perfect additional layer during the transitional period from summer to autumn. This cardigan features classic raglan shaping combined with intricate cabled panels that run down the two fronts of the garment. The cardigan is knitted from the bottom up, with the sleeves and body joined at the base of the yoke.
