705 Fireside Jacket (1 - 4 years)

Dulaney: "This cardigan reminds me of men’s shawl-neck sweaters from the late 1950s. The cozy collar will keep the wearer warm, and the extra long sleeves can be unfolded to keep hands covered (and will also allow the sweater to fit for a few extra months). It is knit seamlessly from the hem to the neck, then the collar is picked up and shaped with short rows." We are enchanted thinking of tots going about their tot business looking like Perry Como or Mr. Rogers (or female equivalent, whoever that might be); the visual contradiction is irresistible. Sleeves are knit in the round, then incorporated into the yoke, which is finished in one piece.
