Technique - Knitting
This design works up quickly in easy care, kid-friendly yarns. The beautiful colors and textures keep it interesting, and the bronze-tone "hammered" buttons add richness. This is a great style for year-round ease and comfort; for a summer cardigan you might use cotton medium weight yarn instead, and adjust your needles a bit for gauge. Sleeves are picked up and knitted on from the shoulder down; one row of single crochet forms the buttonholes, minimizing finishing.
Size: Includes boys 12 months through 4 years. Made with bulky (chunky) weight yarn, sizes 10 (6mm) and 9 (5.5mm) needles, and size H (5mm) crochet hook.
