This cosy and throughly adorable short-sleeved cardigan is the perfect summer cover-up for little ones. The super-soft wool and alpaca mix is reasonable and there are lots of lovely shades to choose from. The cardi has a bright yoke that mimics its knitted Fair Isle cousins and is fastened with a shiny satin ribbon. What more could a girl wish for? The crochet pattern has been sized for ages one to eight years.

The cardigan is worked from the top down, in one piece.
Keep checking the placement of stitches and stitch count at the end of each row of the Yoke to ensure correct results.
