Any toddler would love to wear this hand knit red sweater and it is sure to become a treasured hand-me-down. The knit-in decorative band, collar, cuffs, bottom band and buttons add a lot of character to this cardigan.
I used a machine washable yarn that is very practical for children: 40% wool for warmth and 50% acrylic and 10% nylon for easy care. It feels very much like the Merino yarn I often use. The yarn is a medium weight, not too warm to wear inside the home.
