Debonair baby / child's cardigan - hand knitting pattern

Mosaic stitch patterning on the fronts gives this V-neck jacket a retro flair, underlined by the restrained texture on the back. If you can’t resist the look of little boys in grandpa cardigans, this one’s for you.

Using one multi-coloured yarn for the colourwork will give the patterning extra energy, but for the true vintage vibe, be sure to keep the garter-stitch hem, cuffs and neckband solid.

This colourwork is easy because it's created with slipped stitches and only one yarn is handled in a row.
