Item details

The “Butterfly” Short Sleeve Cardigan is knit seamlessly, in fingering weight yarn. The texture at the bottom of the cardigan is created with 2 different slip stitch patterns - Lattice and Mock Honeycomb. The body of the cardigan is knit from the bottom up and the set-in sleeves are knit from the top down, in the round, using short rows. “Butterfly” is the perfect sweater for school, a walk in the woods or maybe even for chasing some butterflies!

The body of the cardigan is knit back and forth, but the sleeves are knit in the round using double pointed needles or 2 circular needles.

Knitting set-in sleeves using short row shaping may be unfamiliar to some. I have included row by row instructions for the short rows, including stitch counts. Instructions for wrapping stitches and picking up wraps are also included. This small sweater is a good opportunity to give this nifty technique a try!

The cardigan is shown on American Girl dolls, but will fit other 18” (46 cm) play dolls with about an 11” (28 cm) chest circumference.

This listing is for the pattern to make your own Butterfly Short Sleeve Cardigan. The finished garments and dolls shown are not included.

Pattern instructions are in English.
