This little cardigan is suitable for boys or girls, and features cables-within-cables on the front and back, a single cable running down the centre of the sleeves, and the panels on either side of the cable-work being stocking stitch. Ideal for playtime and back to school when made in a durable yarn, although the Bernat Satin is lovely and luxurious. Ciaran, pronounced “Kee-ran” means “little dark-haired one.”

There are sixpages to the pattern, with written instructions and photographs. The garment is knit flat, so only straight needles are required.
