A shawl collard cardigan for both the baby and young kiddos. Choose your size from 3 months to size 8-10. Make one for each child in the family. Using a worsted weight yarn and size 8 needle, you’ll want to make many. Learn how to make a traditional top down raglan sweater ( very little sewing) , back loop cast on, increase and decrease techniques and wrap and turn short row shaping. For the collar, we’ll pick up stitches and make a button band and button holes. Also, we will use double pointed needles for the sleeves. So much fun!
