Spring is the season to break out all the fun colors for active kids. This rainbow striped, gender neutral kids’ cardigan comes with an adorable matching beanie. Simple garter and stockinette stitches keep it fast and easy, and make the set a great gift. Generous positive ease means it will be worn by every kid in the family for years to come. Haydenville DK keeps it soft and durable for lots of active play. Perseus is knit flat in one piece from the bottom ribbing to the underarms, then divided into fronts and the back. The sleeves are knit flat from the bottom up and then seamed to the armholes. The hat is knit in the round from the brim to the crown seamlessly.
