The top / cardigan has top-down SEAMLESS construction - no sewing required except for weaving loose ends. The top can be worn both as a top with button closure at back, or as a short-sleeve cardigan with button closure at front. The hat is knitted in the round, no seams and sewing required.
This is a quick 3 - 4 hour project; great for last minute gifts.
