My Honey cardigan









The first design in the Spice Girls 2 collection, My Honey, was introduced during the spring mystery knit-along I was hosting for the months of March-April 2012 on my ravelry forum.

It was a lot of fun seeing how everyone was working on their clues, and I just love all the beautiful projects that resulted at the end. I am so impressed with everyone's effort!

Here are some more pattern details:

This cardigan aims to bring out the sweetness and simplicity in everyday wear, and features some simple lace, bell sleeves, and an optional decorative bow.
“My Honey” is completely seamless; it is worked from the top down and requires very minimal finishing.

Sizes Available: 
When choosing a size, please do not rely solely on age categories. Measure your child and choose the appropriate size based on actual chest measurements.   About 5 cm/2 inches of positive ease is already incorporated into the pattern.
Side Body Length is measured from the underarm and can be easily adjusted to suit your child.
