Trudy Van Stralen

for Louet North America   c.2004

Shirley (age 2 - 14)

"This sweetly striped cardigan pattern was designed just for kids, from toddler to teeny-bopper," says Van Stralen. "It knits up quickly using our Gems Chunky Weight yarn. The colors are luscious, with 2 palettes to choose from, or choose a palette of your own." A great piece, less boxy than the usual run of kidswear (armholes are indented once for a peasant/modified drop shoulder, but sleeves have a decent cap, so it's a hybrid that fits well). Gems is one of the few wools that our own children will actually wear, so with a great classic style and machine washability, how can you go wrong? Knit from this pattern for years.
