The idea for this whimsical kid's sweater evolved from a crocheted pullover designed for an actress in the musical Amour. That sweater was pieced together from granny "squares" worked in different shapes. In this little cardigan, the designer has joined crocheted circles to form a round yoke. The striped body and sleeves are worked down from the yoke's bottom edge and granny square flags are added at the bottom border. A disco-style collar finishes the neckline.
