This colorful cardigan for children is knitted top-down in garter stitch. The seamless yoke is only formed by some increase rows. The body is worked in rows, sleeves can be worked in the round or in rows.
The cardigan has a modern, swinging silhouette. The Noro yarn „Silk Garden Sock“ or alternativ yarns are most beautifully, if you switch the balls every second row for an optimized changing effect of colors. The cardigan is closed in front with buttons and buttonholes.
Tip: Buttonholes are working on the right front for girls in the pattern. For boys please work them on left front.

I love to develop beautiful designs for children and women and to write the patterns. As a natural born Berliner, I am inspired by the pulse of my city, my two lively girls and modern art. I like geometrical concepts and structures, as you can find them also in architecture. I prefer to use finest natural materials for my work. My key focus is keeping a knitting project exciting. At the same time, I am working on the best way for an uncomplicated making.
