THE FAIR ISLE CROCHET CARDIGAN FOR KIDS, MADE INTO A GORGEOUS LITTLE SWEATER!


Warm all year cardigan for boys and girls. A heirloom! Look at the gorgeous photo of the little boy! It’s Lene from Denmark who has created a beautiful little sweater from this pattern. 
Worked on the round after finishing the yoke. One piece, top/down. Pattern HERE

What a heart-melter!
So cute in his little Fair Island-sweater!


The original sample, plain, closed in front with
traditional pewter-buttons.
This crochet cardigan is inspired by the classic, Scandinavian stranded knitting-patterns.
Being Norwegian, I’ve learned to appreciate them as part of my cultural inheritance. I’m always looking for methods to achieve the style in crochet!

As an optional final finish, I have added surface crochet- and embroidery embellish to the cuffs and hemline!
Another inspiration from the vintage Scandinavian knitted sweaters.
Full tutorial in pattern for the surface-stitches!
