Product details

A trendy knitting pattern for a jacket featuring butterflies for ages 2 to 13 years.

The jacket is knitted in a self-striping yarn and a contrast yarn is used for the butterflies and picot edges. There is a fullness to the bottom of the cardigan and then shaped for a fitted upper bodice which is fastened with 4 buttons.

The picot edging is easy to do and adds a pretty detail to the front. The back also has butterflies on one shoulder which makes a nice feature to the design.

Tension – 22 sts and 28 rows to 10 cm (4 in) over stocking stitch on 4 mm needles
