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.
