Knitting needles required are 1 pair 4 mm (UK8 - USA6) and 1 pair of 3¼ mm (UK10 - USA3)

3/4 small buttons are required for the front of the cardigan.

Tension - 22 stiches and 28 rows 10cm (4 inches) using 4 mm (UK8 - USA6) needles over stocking stitch.

I have not knit yet

Looking forward to knitting this pattern for my great grandson--very pleased with purchase.

I love this pattern and have knitted it 3 times, since buying it a month ago. I found the instructions easy to follow, different size instructions are colour coded, which is very helpful.

I am very pleased with the pattern but haven’t started it yet as I need to choose the yarn. However I am confused by the yarn requirements, ie does “3-50 grams” mean 150 grams is required?
