Little Trellis


Little Trellis is a cute cardigan designed for little girls, with a beautiful lace pattern on the yoke. Its smart look will be perfect paired with a pretty dress, but also with a more casual outfit. With its timeless look and neat finishes, you can even use it as a basis for your own creation. Actually, you can find on its Ravelry page some wonderful adaptations that feature colorwork or a textured stitch. And if you fall in love with this pattern and dream of making one just for you… we have you covered with the adult version: Trellis!

This cardigan is knitted from the bottom up, in one piece, without seams. Then you pick up stitches at the armholes before shaping the sleeves using short rows. Finally, you will knit an i-cord edge.
