Tight ruffles across the bodice, cuffs and hemline, add girly
sweetness to this little cardigan. A provisional method is
used to cast on stitches for the body, which is knitted in one
piece (including the button and buttonhole bands) to the
armholes, then the fronts and back are worked separately
to the shoulders. The sleeves are knitted from the cuff edge
to the shoulders. Garter ridges at the bodice and cuffs
provide foundations for the ruffles, which are added after
the knitting is complete. The hemline ruffle is worked off of
stitches exposed from the provisional cast-on. The neckline
is finished with a few rows of garter stitch.
Cardigan made to fit 0–3 (3–6, 6–9, 9–12, 12–18) months.
