Addison's little Red Cardigan Sweater...

....to match her socks.

Once again, I used Cascade 220 Super Wash and US sz 5 for the ribbing/US sz 6 for the body.

Here are the parts:
2 sleeves knit in the round, cuff down
1 body knit in the round, with steeks

Rather than casting the shoulders off, I put them on waste yarn to do a three needle bind off.....after I sew and cut the four steeks (2 sleeve steeks, front steek and Kangaroo pouch for the neck)...>gulp<

I'll tell you how I did it all in another post. :)

I love this set, very wonderful color for a strong little girl.

I take it you survived the cutting. I still don't know if I'm brave enough to do that, but thank goodness you don't need to be with socks! It's a gorgeous set, Maria. Great job!!
