This cute child's cardigan is just the thing for cool days in spring or fall. Kids will love putting their "treasures" in the pocket. Knit in one piece from the bottom up, it uses raglan shaping and has no seams. The ribbed button-band is knitted along with the body of the sweater, so there's virtually no sewing required. The raglan sleeve shaping is easy to do. A simple chain stitch is used for embroidery on the pocket (instructions included). .

I have been knitting on and off since my teens, but became somewhat obsessed with it in 2007. I love squishy wools for the short, mild Los Angeles winters, and like cottons and blends for the rest of the year. I really believe that even beginner knitters can create something beautiful and useful, so I strive to keep patterns simple yet original. I am Goodstuff on Ravelry, and blog from time to time about knitting and life here: I have sold designs to Interweave Knits, Knitpicks, Creative Knitting magazine, KNIT magazine (Yarn Forward), Yarn magazine, Knit Now magazine, Classic Elite Yarns, The Sanguine Gryphon, and Three Irish Girls Yarns.
