Here’s an adorable pattern for any adorable boy or girl. This cardigan sweater has a few knitting techniques that will make knitting it a pleasure and design features that will make the sight of it on your special little one an even greater delight. This is a top down design with no seams. It incorporates an elegant invisible raglan seam increase with hems on the cuff and the body, versus ribbing. The peek of color inside the pockets is echoed in the subtle trim along the neck and button band, providing the finishing touch.

Euroflax Sport, 100% Linen
This sport weight linen yarn is wet spun from flax-fiber. Exceptional softness is achieved by fine splitting the long fibers and double-boiling the yarn. Machine wash on gentle cycle using a non-bleach, mild soap. Dry in your dryer on a medium setting for 15 minutes, then lay flat to finish. For an even softer result, dry completely in the dryer. To enhance the sheen of the yarn, steam with a steam iron.
The on-screen color representations for yarn may not be precise representations of actual colors due to variance in monitor calibrations.

The kit for this sweater, which contains the yarn and pattern, comes in a backpack-style project bag. On the front of the backpack is a zippered pouch with a porthole. You can insert the ball of yarn from which you’re knitting and run the yarn through the porthole, so if you like, you can even knit while walking down the street.
Note: needles and handsome guy not included.
