When I created the Sweetpea Cardigan pattern in a DK version I set out to create it in sizes up to the age of 2 years old. However grading patterns was a new skill for me, and I’m not going to lie. It was a struggle.
The Sweetpea Cardigan is a classic top down raglan style cardigan with short sleeves (stay tuned for details of the long sleeved version). It is knit in one piece so there are no seams to sew up, and it can be knit on straight needles. Although the longer length of circulars (used as straights) will help with the larger stitch counts on the bigger sizes.
Now, after almost a year since the first sizes were released, the final two sizes are now ready! Woohoo!
PDF files for sizes 12-18 months and 18-24 months have now been added to the pattern. If you previously bought the pattern these are now available to you at no extra cost. You will be able to find them in either your Ravelry or Gumroad library.
