The Little Gigi Cardigan

After literally months and months of designing, math, knitting, ripping, reknitting, technical editing (thanks Edie Eckman!) and test knitting (thanks Colleen Freeman!), the Little Gigi Cardigan is finally available for purchase on ravelry.com.  I have called it "Little" Gigi because an adult version is in the works. (Yay!)


This is a perfect little spring cardigan that would be beautiful for Easter!  I can't wait to see what folks do with it.  Enjoy!










A perfect little short-sleeved cardi to wear over a long-sleeved top in the fall or sundress in the spring. This simple smock style cardigan is feminine and whimsical, and is sure to be a favorite!
This is a top down, raglan style cardigan which is worked on circular needles. The body of the sweater is worked in stockinette stitch, while the sleeves and pockets add interest with reverse stockinette. Stitches are picked up for the button and buttonhole bands, as well as for the collar, which is worked vertically.
