Junior version of the Bláithín design sized for toddlers and girls.

Bláithín (junior) is available for £3.95

Bláithín is an Irish name meaning “little flower”

This worsted-weight, soft Donegal child’s cardigan features a colourwork yoke, inset pockets, i-cord edging, and a steeked front opening.

The design of this garment is simple, but some of the techniques involved in making it may be new to some knitters. The pattern includes instructions for all unfamiliar techniques, and additional support is also available on my website in a number of illustrated tutorials.
