1802 Long and Short-Sleeved Cardigans (birth to 7 years)
WEB EXCLUSIVE

We marvel at the versatility and ease of this little piece. It is all composed of knits and purls only, and yet the result looks extravagantly accomplished. It looks as fine on a sleeping infant as on a vibrant little girl. Actually it's an interesting feature of this garment that it would look equally good on boy or girl babies, and yet at some point changes into something quite female. Armholes are nicely shaped and sleeves have gentle caps, for a trimmer fit.

Scroll down to the review below for some extra help Sirdar offers in knitting the back right after "Armhole Shaping".

Some knitters have noted that it can be tricky to incorporate the armhole shaping together with starting the top-third stitch pattern. When contacted about this, Sirdar sent the following response.

This design has been very popular over the years and has in fact been reprinted over 12 times. (We) would agree that you don't get much chance to get the gist of the 3rd pattern before you start shaping and altering the stitches of the broken rib. However, for anyone having difficulty with this, we are able to send some extra rows to help.
