A warm and classic, seamless baby or toddler cardigan worked top down. It is an easy and quick knit, well suited for an advanced beginner. The design is worked in a traditional Faroe Island Wool but it would look great in any wool – and ensure your child stays warm during a cold winter. The simple construction allows for easy modifications of the pattern. The cute handmade buttons give just the right look,
adapt the style by choosing the buttons you like.

The jacket is inspired by the traditional sweaters from the Faroe Islands of wich Mykines is the westernmost. The isolated island has been inhabited since about year 650, well before the start of the Viking Age. Today, Mykines is best known for its amazing birdlife. I visited Mykines a long time ago, newly engaged to the love of my life. It was just like entering a dream world. I hope I will be able to go back some time.
