Dalton Cardigan

This sweet little cardigan is worked from the top down in a simple garter rib pattern. Tailored details such as shaped shoulders and set-in sleeves give it sophisticated appeal, even on the smallest infant. The instructions follow the basic set-in sleeve instructions from The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters, adapted for smaller sizes than offered in the book.

Sizes include 18 1/2 (19 1/2, 21 3/4, 23 3/4)” (47 [49.5, 55, 60.5] cm), to fit 3 – 6 (6 – 9, 9 – 12, 12 – 18) months. Sweater shown measures 18 1/2″ (47 cm).

The yarn is River City Yarns Hat Trick Semi-Solid (80% superwash merino, 20% nylon; 382 yard [352 meters]/100 grams) in the colorway Faceoff. The gauge is 14 stitches and 21 rows = 2″ (5 cm) in garter rib pattern, on size U.S. 3 (3.25 mm) needles.
