Here is a traditional top-down cardigan sized for a little miss or man. Hyphen is knit using a worsted weight wool so we are using Malabrigo's Rios for our kit. Rios is a 100% superwash wool and is hand-dyed in amazing tonal and variegated colors. A simple sweater like Hyphen is a great choice for a dynamic yarn like Rios.
This sweater is knit seamlessly beginning at the collar. The textured stitch on the circular yoke is an easy 2-row repeat. Stitches are reserved for the sleeves as the rest of the body is completed and then the sleeves are worked in the round from the top down. The button band is worked as you go, so the only finishing is weaving in the ends and sewing on the buttons! The sweater is sized for 3 months to 8 years with finished measurements of 16 (17, 18, 19, 21, 23, 25, 26.5)". Hyphen can be machine washed and dried flat. Designed by Lisa Chemery.
