A warm cardigan for little girls featuring bobbles and an easy slip-stitch mosaic pattern. Mosaic colourwork is deceptively simple and the cardigan knits up surprisingly fast. The cardigan is top-down and seamless and its yoke is embellished with contrasting colour and small bobbles for interest. Add some lazy daisies to the yoke or, if your buttons don't need the competition, leave them plain. The body of the cardigan is knit back-and-forth and the sleeves are knitted in the round. You will need three colours. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knitting flat knitting in the round yarn over increasing by m1 and kfb purling slipping stitches longtail cast-on binding off decreasing by k2tog and ssk optional basic embroidery GAUGE 22 stitches and 30 rows = 4 inches in Stockinette on 4 mm needles SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 9 months, 18 months, 3, 4, 6 and 8 years PREFERRED BRAND/YARN None. COLORWAY Choose three colours you love. The pattern works well with variegated yarn as one of the colours.

Recommended with this pattern

  • 8ply/DK wool or wool-blend yarn in three colours.

I’m a wife, mum to two young girls (and two guinea pigs), a volunteer treasurer and serve the public four days a week. Knitting and designing is my favourite thing to do in my downtime - when I get some! I like to focus on practical garments and seamless construction. I love exploring interesting knitting techniques, construction and colour plays. And I have very little self-control in yarn shops.
