Free Toddler Sweater Knitting Pattern: Butterfly

You requested a knit sweater pattern for the toddler. I found a great pattern when I wandered through my archive of knitting patterns. We made this pattern that we called “butterfly sweater” years ago, and Jenny’s was knitted for his son. I decided to share with you the new toddler sweater pattern.

From our free knitting patterns library, this adorable cardigan by Jessica L. makes the pretty cardigan for the little prince in your life. Knit it in butterfly colors for an adorable sweater to wear with an Easter dress. The original yarn for we suggest Nako Yarns. This machine-washable yarn is perfect for kids, especially if your little prince’s lifestyle requires frequent laundering.
