My last design “Hugs and Kisses Toddler Poncho“ is so popular, so I decide to do a cardigan(Available free on my blog, too. Link is Here). And this time the cardigan has a size range from 2 – 10 years. It’s not a easy things to do this since too much calculation and changes to fit the different needs. But anyway, everything turns out great. This definitely is an unique crochet cable sweater for the little cuties.

    1. You may wash the millamia yan in Handwash circle with mild detergent (like shampoo for your hair)and flat dry. It’s not hard to take care of the merino yarn. However, if you still like a dryable yarn, I’ll say you could try any yarn in weight category 3 (like Bernat Softee Baby or Stylecraft Special Aran) Just remember to check you gauge and choose the right hook size for your project.
