    About Joy

    Hanna Lisa loves a good cardigan for her little one: it’s the perfect layering piece, can be quickly thrown on if the mornings are still cool and taken off at the playground when it’s no longer needed.

    It’s also such a great piece for kids as you can still see cute onesies or T-shirts underneath it - it’s always sad if you have to cover up a favorite patterned onesie with a pullover!

    Joy features a scaled-down cable pattern running down the sleeves, fake seams at the side of the body and inside of the sleeves to break up the stockinette fabric, and a continuous buttonband/neckline/hem that is worked at the very end (such a fun technique!) and gives you the option to space out your buttons as you like.
