Basic Skills Necessary:

  • increase, decrease, circular knitting, cables

Pattern Description:

Sweet Poppy is the child's version of my adults 'Capricious' design. Sweet Poppy was inspired by the places of my childhood; from hot desert roads, through fields upon fields of wild flowers, to the shores of Mediterranean Sea.

"Sweet Poppy" is my vision of poppy fields, always moving in the breeze, always colorful, and always simply unforgettable.

The cardigan is completely seamless and is worked from the top down. I have used an amazing technique developed by Susie Myers, "contiguous set-in sleeves", that allows shoulder shaping and set-in sleeves construction without the use of a single short row.

The pattern is written for DK gauge.
You can use dk, sport, 4-ply yarn for this project as long as you can get gauge. Lighter weight yarns are recommended for a drapier cardigan.


22 sts x 29 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch on 4 mm needles or size required to meet gauge.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • To fit 17" to 30" chest; 6 months to 14 years


  • 200 to 1100 yards of fingering, sports or dk weight yarn
  • 4 mm and 3.5 mm circular needles

You Will Also Need:

  • 4 stitch markers, stitch holders

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Colour Adventures Dia Fingering


Any solid or semi solid colourway
