Junior Christmas Cardigan

£4.00

by Susan Crawford

This delightful cardigan is worked in one piece from the bottom up to the underarm, working backwards and forwards. The sleeves are then knitted separately as far as the armhole shaping and then all pieces are joined together to knit the yoke. The reindeer motifs are worked using Fair Isle style stranded knitting, carrying the spare yarn across the back of the work. Inset contrasting pockets are knitted first and then joined to the body of the knitting. A combination of written and charted instructions are provided with sizes ranging from age 1 to 8 years included in the pattern.

Knitted in my Excelana 4 ply Luxury wool. All the colours can be viewed and purchased here.
