Pattern Description:

FAIR ISLE CROCHET CARDIGAN FOR KIDS

Warm all year cardigan for boys and girls. A heirloom!
Look at the gorgeous pic of the little boy! It's Lene from Denmark who has created a beautiful little sweater from this pattern. Worked on the round after finishing the yoke.

This crochet cardigan is inspired by the classic, Scandinavian stranded knitting-patterns.
Being Norwegian, I've learned to appreciate them as part of my cultural inheritance. I'm always looking for methods to achieve the style in crochet!

As an optional final finish, I have added surface crochet- and embroidery embellish to the cuffs and hemline!
Another inspiration from the vintage Scandinavian knitted sweaters.
Full tutorial in pattern for the surface-stitches!

One piece, top/down. No yarn-breaking.
The sleeves are raglan-shaped, giving room for a turtle-neck, etc, under the cardigan.
The front is closed with traditional pewter-buttons, of course; Any matching buttons are nice!
