Pattern Description:

I've always loved little girls in ruffles and lace; they look so sweet. This cardigan has a delicate picot edging on the hem, sleeves and collar, resembling gathered lace. The smooth and simple stockinette stitch provides a wonderful background for the texture of the embellishments. The cardigan is closed with button tabs which grow out of sweet little bows on the center front bands. The garment is designed with 2" of positive ease making this an easy comfortable sweater to wear and grow with your child. A fun sweater in which to dress your precious little girl.
