Teatime with Teddy Bear Cardigan

a sweet lacy knit


$6.00

 

This cardigan is perfect for teatime with your favorite teddy bear. It’s dressy and sweet for those tricky days when you need to convince Mommy that you REALLY are a good girl. Promise!

Knit seamlessly from the top down, this cardigan is light and airy, but still provides some extra warmth on brisk spring days. The delicate lace motif on the back of this sweater is dramatic but also easy to follow. Three-quarter length sleeves and a slightly shortened body make this a quick addition to any little girl’s spring wardrobe.

There is now a BONUS page included in this pattern! The extra page allows you to modify the Teatime with Teddy Bear pattern in order to make a cropped, short-sleeve shrug.
