Surpris is my newest invention, a fun cardigan for the small girls – short in the front and long in the back, with a perfect opportunity to play with different colors. It’s all knitted seamless and top-down in one piece, and not a wrap in sight! Instructions are given for both a long and a short version.
Note: Surpris for adults is in the making!

Note: Yardage is a rough approximation, since it all depends on how much of the MC one chooses to use in the skirt.
Also, the yardage estimates are for the longer skirt version.
