Valley Yarns Sweetie is the perfect project to welcome a new baby or knit for a special toddler. Warm, soft, and with the fun addition of self-striping colors, Sweetie is cute and practical for keeping little ones warm. With raglan shaping and a crossover v-neck, this cardigan is meant to be easy to put on and comfortable for babies and toddlers to wear too. Choose from the fun colorways of Valley Yarns Easthampton for the main body, and pair a solid shade of Valley Superwash Sport to add tidy ribbed trims.
