Little (Splash of) Petrichor
Little (Splash of ) Petrichor is a design collaboration with Tangled Yarn. It is knit using the same stitch pattern as the adult sized version; Petrichor but with adjusted shaping is to suit a little girls’ figure. No waist shaping at all, but additional front neckline shaping to allow the fronts to overlap more, plus extra back shaping for a slight A-line shape.
Just like the adult version, this cardigan is knit top down, absolutely seamlessly (with pockets joined to the hem as you go). All raglan increases are charted, too.
