Pattern Details

Little Avalyn is a miniature-sized version of Avalyn, a timeless, elegant piece with classic design details. This cardigan looks great on girls and boys alike! The rib?based, allover lattice texture and chunky cables together with the cardigan's folded cuffs and shawl collar will keep your little one warm and cozy in sophisticated style. This cardigan is knit seamlessly from the top down using raglan shaping. The yoke is knit first and stitches are placed on hold for the sleeves. The body is then worked to the hem. Upon completion of the body, stitches are picked up along the edges of the cardigan for the shawl collar, which is shaped using short rows before the button band is worked. Finally, the sleeves are resumed and worked seamlessly in the round from the top down. NOTES: This pattern contains both written and charted instructions. Cabling without a cable needle is highly recommended for this pattern.

I'm a twenty-something Pacific North westerner living in Olympia, Washington. I first learned to knit in the Fall of 2005 and after much self-teaching and practice, began designing my own patterns in early 2010. I know I'm not alone when I say I can't imagine life without my knitting! :)
