A merry little knit for little folk!
The cardigan is knitted from the top down with a steek at the centre front. Short rows below the neck edging drop the front neck. The icord piping details are worked integrally by working applied icord then picking up stitches along the icord to continue working with.
Tension/gauge is f28 stitches and 36 rounds per 10cm/4" in blocked stitch/stockinette. Blocked tension/gauge in the stranded yoke section is 32 stitches and 32 rounds per 10cm/4".
The finished cardigan has 10–13cm (4–5") of positive ease at the chest.
