60 Sweet Poppy (6m-14 years)

Sweet Poppy is the child's version of my adults Capricious design.

Sweet Poppy is completely seamless and is worked from the top down. I have used an amazing technique developed by Susie Myers, “contiguous set-in sleeves”, that allows shoulder shaping and construction of set-in sleeves without the use of a single short row.

Sweet Poppy is written for DK gauge. You can use DK, sport, 4-ply yarn for this project as long as you can get gauge. Lighter weight yarns are recommended for a drapier cardigan.

(Nodel has characterized this pattern as "Easy". You may look askance at this given the detail and apparent complexity of the design, but be assured, she takes excellent care of you throughout the creation of this appealing cardigan, including notes in bold and excellent photography--ed.)

Both Sweet Poppy and Capricious are available together in the same pattern for $10 here.

This design is now available in an e-book: Sun and Sand, and contains 6 designs for $18.00 (U.S.)
