Scoop Shop Cardi
I have the best luck pitching sweaters to my daughter when there’s a theme - like this ice cream sweater. Scoop Shop Cardi has waffle-cone-textured sleeves, sprinkle bobbles, and the cutest treat buttons I could find. This unisex sweater features a V-neck with a shawl collar; the turnback on the collar is slim so as not to crowd little necks.
The fronts, back, and sleeves are worked flat and seamed together using raglan construction. Stitches are picked up for the shawl collar and button band, which are worked with German short rows. Instructions are given for placing the buttons on either the left or the right side of the garment.
This pattern includes a progress chart for tracking stitch counts row by row during the concurrent shaping that creates the fronts.
Scoop Shop Cardi is for children sized 2 years - 12 years. A copy of the schematic with finished measurements and yardage for each size can be downloaded here.
