I made this cardigan using the "Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns" by Ann Budd. It's for my 6 year old son Levi, who you can see is quite proud of his new sweater! The thing that makes it so great is how excited he is about it. He hasn't taken it off since I finished it, except to sleep and even then, he folded it and tucked it under his bed for night! This took less than 4 balls of Patons Decor and took me less than 2 weeks to make. For more pictures and more info, you can visit my blog or my ravelry page (links below).

Thanks for looking!!

That is really a cute lad, and he sure is proud of the sweater his Mom made him. He has good reason, it`s great. Did you use the Applied I-Cord bind off on that... it looks really nicely finished.

Love the front neckline! Sorta sweeps downward and has a zipper, too! You did a VERY nice job on it and Levi's a great model! Mary

You did a wonderful job! No wonder that handsome little charmer of yours doesn't want to take it off.

I, myself, am partial to blond headed boys of that age, having had one. He's very cute!

Your sweater is marvelous -- your son should be a model. He has the poses down just right. I can see him on the runways.

Wonderful sweater. A good fit, with a little room to grow. Your son looks so sweet, and sounds sweet too in his reaction to his new sweater. Makes me nostalgic for when my son was that age. Enjoy him.
