Product details

This fun cardigan is worked in strips which are joined as you go. Using a self-patterning yarn will create the unique patchwork look of the finished garment; if you decide to use a different color for each strip you will have a great stash buster project.

To make this pattern suitable for boy and girl you have a choice between different necklines (crew-neck or V-neck) as well as a choice of edging (ruffle, garter st, ribbing). Instructions for placing the buttonholes on either side are also given.


This pattern is test knitted. For sizing I used the the Yarn Council standards but children vary very much in size. Please make sure that you adapt the length accordingly ;-)

The sample was made with Noro Taiyo. A suggested shade is shown below.

Diese lustige Jacke wird in Streifen gestrickt, die gleich während des Strickens miteinander verbunden werden. Der attraktive Patchwork-Effekt entsteht durch Farbverlaufsgarn ganz von selbst, es lassen sich jedoch auch beliebige einfarbige
