A charming, cosy and comfortable cardigan for your little one to wear!!
6-12 (12-18, 18-24, 24-36) months
Let Madeleine tell you about her gorgeous pattern in her own words:
"Bernina is a mountain in the Alps on the border between Switzerland and Italy.
Bernina is a cute, cozy and practical cardigan for a baby or toddler with a playful cable design. It is worked from the bottom up and at the underarm, the sleeves, which have been knit separately (in the round), are knit on and the top is shaped using a saddle-shoulder method, for which full instructions are given. The button band is then picked up from the front edges to complete the garment, and the only seams to close are a few stitches at the underarms! The sizes are designed to give around 5 cm/ 2” of positive ease around the chest, both for comfort and growing space. If in doubt you can measure the child’s chest and then choose your size accordingly."

Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge
