Short Description:This light cardigan is perfect for layering in the spring or summer. A simple and easy-to-memorize texture stitch keeps things interesting while the small pop of color along the bands keeps things fun. Two sleeve options are provided—they can be worked flat and then seamed or picked up along the armholes and worked in one piece from the top down. The cardigan can be worked in Chickadee for a sturdier garment or Finch for a sheerer cover-up. Sample is knit in Finch. My daughter always reaches for this cardigan when the weather is crisp and an extra layer is needed—hopefully your child will too!
