This is a pattern for a boy's or girl's cardigan. It is perfect for outerwear in the spring or fall, or even on a chilly summer night. Or, it can be used under a jacket or coat in winter. It is an original design, so you will not see others wearing this sweater. The instructions include sizes 2 - 12 years, and it can easily be modified for a boy or a girl. I have given it often as a gift, and it has stolen the show.
I used Swish DK yarn, a 100% washable merino yarn, so it has a wonderful, rich feel of wool, yet it can be easily cared for by machine washing. The numbers are knit into the sweater, so the final product is a clean, neat look. The instructions have been tested, and they are easy to follow and complete. I hope you love this sweater as much as I do.
