8473 Sweater and Cardigan (preemie - age 4)

This is absolutely one of our favorite rib patterns ever-- handsome to look at, and cushy to feel and wear, which of course makes it perfect for children. For the sweater, the shoulder is buttoned on all sizes, not just the smallest ones (which is frequently the case). Sleeves are lightly set in. The front bands and collar for the cardi are worked in an unusual way: they are cast on in a long side-to-side strip and then you cast off at intervals, forming the shawl collar with no wraps or short rows, and then sew it to the garment.
