Mini Cropped Cardigan is the children’s version of our women’s style: Super Cropped Cardigan in Big Cotton. You can see this version here.
Mini Cropped Cardigan is knit flat from the back panel, over the shoulders, and down the front panels, before picking up stitches for the sleeves and seaming the sides. The body is knit in seed stitch with ribbed hems.
