« Lutin Marguerite » is another design with a super long hood, this time made with worsted weight to fit little ones with sizes going from 6 months to 2 year old.
As you may know, I’m french. Every now and again I like to use french words to describe my patterns: « lutin » is the french word for « Elf »…
It features a cute « marguerite » (= daisies in french) floral motif along the edge of the hood and the bottom edge.
Crab stitch edges compliment the unique look, while twisted cords make a safe closure system for babies.
Originally made with recycled cotton and hemp worsted weight yarn (available as a KIT for this design), you could also use colored yarns, just as my amazing testers did.
Oh. And one last thing. Like the Lutin Marguerite but you’d like to make it in MORE KIDS SIZES ? No problem. Use bulky yarn and a 6.0 mm (J) hook, to achieve gauge of 13 stitches and 6 rows = 4 inches in dc in the front loop (US crochet terms)
If you’d like to make a Lutin Marguerite in larger KIDS SIZES:
the same 4 sizes given in instructions should give you sizes 4 YEAR OLD to 10 YEAR OLD.
I use the same base for all my kids patterns, thus change the gauge and you’ll get more kids sizes as for the Roselette top or Roseline cardigan.
However, for a hooded cardigan such as this one, you may have to adjust the size of the Hood, as I sized it down to get the proper sizing for babies. 🙂
