C770 Child's Jennifer Cardigan
WEB EXCLUSIVE

Penny Straker: “My mother first designed the Jennifer Cardigan for women; however the design was charming and feminine - yet easy to knit - it seemed perfect for little girls, too.

“Knit in Sport Weight yarn on #5 needles, Child’s Jennifer is a Raglan-sleeve cardigan with the yoke, as well as sleeve and body cuffs, adorned with the Mock Cable. This is a simple yet lovely openwork stitch, with the cable created without a third needle.

“The only caveat: When working an allover pattern stitch, which includes a Yarn Over, and also working a decrease pattern, (in this case, the Raglan decreases) it is essential to pay attention and not negate the Raglan decreases by working the YO when there are insufficient stitches remaining for a complete Mock Cable! Easy enough to do just by looking ahead right after working the Raglan decrease, to see if there are the 3 necessary stitches to complete one ‘cable’.

“Jennifer can be knit in many different fibers although best in smooth rather than highly textured yarns. Perhaps a cotton/wool blend, or wonderful 100% machine washable wool yarns. The process used, which originated in Europe, also adds softness to machine-washable wool, making them perfect for children.”
