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.

We created a kit for this cardigan to fit a baby - you'll have enough yarn in your kit to knit the second size, 17" chest circumference. If you'd like to knit a larger size, simple order more skeins of your chosen color in our Divine DK yarn.

This yarn is ready to ship from our studio to your favorite knitting chair.
