Joseph is a kid’s cardigan, both timeless with its double seed stitch and modern with its slightly asymetrical buttoning. Plus, its beautiful raglan opens on stockinette sleeves, which creates a good balance with the textured body. And as for its collar, it will keep the neck of your little explorers warm! Choose different yarns, for example a solid colour or a tweed, or different texture, like a smooth yarn or something more rustic, and you can knit a different one for every of their adventure. Actually, if you take a look at the Ravelry page of the pattern, you will find several dozens of them, a real source of inspiration!

This cardigan is knitted from the top down, in one piece, without seams.
