Design consists of simple shaping, and knitting and purling. Worked in two solid colors of aran weight yarn, with one tweed yarn added for interest, this is a very quick to knit cardigan. It is suitable for beginners who understand stockinette stitch, casting on, binding off, and picking up stitches. There is one row of single crochet that edges the front of the cardigan, and creates the button holes. Timeless, traditional and classic, this will be a welcome addition to any young gentleman's wardrobe this fall! First page of the pattern is shown here for details regarding materials, sizing and other basic information.
This is the downloadable knitting pattern to create the Garrett Cardigan. This is an easy to knit cardigan with traditional style and classic appeal that is sized for boys ages 12 months through 4 years of age. The beautiful colors and textures keep it interesting, and the "hammered" bronze-tone buttons add richness. An assortment of kid-friendly (aran/medium weight) yarns are suggested for you to use. For summer, you may want to try Nature's Choice Organic Cotton yarn from Lion Brand, adjusting your needles a bit for gauge. A wool/acrylic or wool/cotton blend makes a great choice for fall and winter. Sleeves are picked up and knitted on from the shoulder down, and a row of single crochet forms the buttonholes and edges, minimizing your finishing.
