Mini Waves Cardigan (English pattern)


Mini Waves Cardigan is a lovely children’s cardigan with a cute hood that make it look special. The cable in the front continues around the entire hood. The cable is two-sided, that is, it is equal on the front and back, so that what may appear from the back of the cable is as pretty as the front. The same double-sided cable goes back to the bottom of the sleeves, which makes it easy to fold up the cable if you wish, it’s just as pretty to look at anyway.


The pattern is for sizes 3-12 years.
The cardigan in the picture is knitted with one thread «Loft, Brooklyn tweed» and one thread «Tilia, Filcolana». There are many possibilities for choosing yarn though.
