This week’s cardigan features bold colors and pockets that are knit onto the sweater by picking up stitches above the ribbing on the front of the sweater after it’s knit.
Buttons are made using one strand of purple yarn to embroider the french knots. All of my sweaters are knit in one piece with very little seaming if any at all. They are also made using only 3 double pointed needles. This is so much less awkward than using 4 or 5 double pointed needles on such a tiny garment.
Sweater is knit from the top down.
Sweater is approx. 3″ tall
