Pattern Details

"Alouette, gentille alouette..." As sweet as a whimsical children's song, this little cardigan is the prefect addition to a little girl's wardrobe. Straightforward to knit with its top-down construction and pretty stitch pattern, it features lovely details such as the subtle flare at the top of the 3/4 sleeves, which echoes the overall swingy shape. ~~~ Construction: This garment is knit seamlessly from the top down, with the button bands worked as you go. The yoke is worked flat using raglan increases then sleeves stitches are put on hold while the body of the cardigan is worked in one piece. The 3/4 length sleeve stitches are then worked in the round.
