Ipana Cardigan4:06 PM
Ipana (”kiddo”) Cardigan is knitted seamlessly from the top down with circular yoke shaping. Sleeves are worked in the round. The yoke features a bubblewrap stitch decoration in multiple colors. It has the look of stranded color work, but it’s knitted with only one color at a time. Choose your favorite colors, or find use for all those scrap yarns! The cardigan has a slim fit (with about 3 cm/1 ¼“ positive ease) so it’s easy to wear as a middle layer and looks cool on its own. Please measure your child’s chest and arm circumference when choosing size, and choose a larger size if in doubt – or to make sure there’s growing space. The top-down construction makes it easy to try it on and modify both body and sleeve lengths if needed.

One of the best parts of knitting this cardigan was choosing the colors. And while I was waiting for my test knitters to work on their cardigans, I couldn't help but try a couple of other Tukuwool color combos. As soon as I find a 2-year-old model, I'll share more pics with you!
