2416 Cardigans (ages 2 - 13)

We are really excited about this cardigan: it's fresh and pretty and feminine, but strong and ungooey too. And it's just plain different enough that it looks like it could have come from a posh ready-to-wear shop, but it's really easy to knit. Using the main photo as an example: the bottom tier (in purple) is about 4"/10cm longer than the top (pink) one. After working both separately, you knit them together (as in a three-needle-bind-off) with the third colour and carry on up the yoke. Truly simple, logical but lovely, and of course the colour combinations are endless. Sleeves are lightly set in with rounded caps.

This design proved so popular that in spring 2015, Sirdar issued an adult version, Sirdar 7215, for teens and women, available here.
