Wallaby DK Children's Cardigan by Georgie Hallam

Wallaby personifies stylish simplicity. This perfectly shaped and fitting cardigan with its eye-catching yoke detail will quickly become your go to cardigan for all occasions. Gender neutral and appropriate for all ages.

A wallaby belongs to the same family as kangaroos (macropods) but is much smaller.

Customize this sweater to make it yours by choosing your favorite yoke increases! Choose from a variety of speckled skeins from our many ready-to-ship colorways, or browse our semi-solid skeins ready-to-ship. We also have speckled skeins dyed-to-order or semi-solid skeins dyed-to-order for even more choices - make sure you choose DK weight from these colorway options.

This wee cardigan features a circular yoke and is knit seamlessly from the top down. It is finished with lovely chunky garter stitch cuffs. Wallaby explores the effect different increases can have on a yoke by using three variations and it is simple enough for a beginner.

The body of this cardigan is knit flat and the sleeves are knit in the round.
