We received so many requests for an adult version of our baby cardigan Kirby, we had to oblige. Cardigan is worked in one piece from the neck down, then divided for body and sleeves. Back neck is raised with short rows. Sleeves are worked down in the round.

See our matching baby sweater Kirby, and kids’ sweater Wynn.
