This cardigan in Baby Blossom DK is as fresh as a daisy! The yarn is dyed to create the look of gradated stripes separated by bands of Fair Isle-style flowers and leaves--all you do is knit in stockinette! Instructions are given for both round and v-neck shape. The body is knit from the bottom up, with stitches divided at the armholes to work the front and back separately. The raglan sleeves are knit flat and sewn in. Stitches are picked up and worked for the borders. The sweater is sized for infant to 7 years. Finished chest measurements are 17.75 (19.75, 21.75, 24, 25.5, 27.5)" with lengths of 9 (10.25, 11.75, 13, 14, 15.5)". Baby Blossom DK is an acrylic/nylon blend that can be machine washed and dried flat.
