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!


Newborn (chest: 16 inches/40 cm)
3 months (chest: 17 inches/43 cm)
6 months (chest: 18.5 inches/45 cm)
12 months (chest: 19.5 inches/50 cm)
2 years (chest: 22 inches/55 cm)
4 years (chest: 24 inches/60 cm)
5 years (chest: 25.5 inches/65 cm)
6 years (chest: 26.5 inches/67 cm)
8 years (chest: 28 inches/71 cm)
10 years (chest: 30 inches/76 cm)

Choose size after chest measurement rather than age. Garment looks best with some negative ease.

4.5 sts and 6 rows per inch in stockinette

Materials and tools:

Worsted or light aran weight yarn

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.
