Joy is part of our Kids Collection 2021! You can purchase the full collection (which includes a short guide to picking the right size), but we are also making all the designs available as single patterns. This means you can purchase the patterns you are interested in, and with our bundle options, it is easier than ever to pick and mix your favorite designs.

What are our bundles? We’re glad you asked! Let’s check out all the options below:

  • Purchase a single pattern of your choice.
  • Bundle three patterns and get 15% off the total price by adding JOY15 at check out.
  • Bundle five patterns and get 30% off the total price by adding JOY30 at check out.
  • Buy the entire collection and get it for 50% off the total price for all individual patterns, no coupon needed!

The Kids Collection is available in both our webshop and on Ravelry, with the same coupons for the bundles working on both platforms.

Hanna Lisa loves a good cardigan for our little one: it’s the perfect layering piece, can be quickly thrown on if the mornings are still cool and taken off at the playground when it’s no longer needed.

It’s also such a great piece for kids as you can still see cute onesies or T-shirts underneath it - it’s always sad if you have to cover up a favorite patterned onesie with a pullover!

Joy features a scaled-down cable pattern running down the sleeves, fake seams at the side of the body and inside of the sleeves to break up the stockinette fabric, and a continuous buttonband/neckline/hem that is worked at the very end (such a fun technique!) and gives you the option to space out your buttons as you like.
