The pattern was in September 2013 revised and updated to improve the fit of the armhole and sleeves, and a new size was added. To celebrate this, Fjäril Mini is now available in baby and child sizes.

You’ve been looking for that light, easy and delicate cardigan to spice up your summer wardrobe? For all those days when it’s just a bit too chilly to only wear that dress or beautiful top that you can’t stay away from – Fjäril is for you!

Fjäril (Swedish for “Butterfly”) is a simple yet interesting design, worked top down in stockinette with lace panels in the shape of butterflies. This only calls for 1-2 skeins of fingering weight yarn – perhaps that lovely skein of sock yarn that you’ve been saving?


Psst! Buying adult Fjäril automatically gives you a discount of 50% on Fjäril Mini!
