If you have bought, or are currently buying, the Vesle Vinterfjell cardigan, you get this pattern half price.

Vesle Vinterfjell is the children’s version of my ‘Vinterfjell’ sweater pattern for adult. This sweater is worked seamlessly top-down in the round, with some short-rows to raise the neckline in the back. The pattern was originally released in 2018, but this is the 2020 updated pattern with two more sizes: age 1/2 and 2 years. Moreover, the entire pattern was reworked to improve the yoke shaping.

I hope you will enjoy this pattern, and if you need any help, please do not hesitate to contact me in my Ravelry group ‘Skeindeer Knits’. It’s the best place for swift support. Happy knitting!
