This is one of my favorite children's patterns - its a staple in my knitting basket. The instructions are so clear and there are endless ways to change up the look by widening the stripes to four or five rows, adding garter stitch bands, knitting the sweater in a self striping yarn, etc. Its quick and easy to make too and the fit is nice on the little ones.

i really love it thank you very much { vim}

I can't download the pattern. Can you help me to do it?

Thank you for bringing this to our attention, scmarnie and jrgoodwin38 3549925! We have updated the link and you should now be able to access this pattern. --Editors of AllFreeKnitting

cannot get this pattern to appear, it just says "page not found". Can you help? Greatgram5

The link to the pattern directions for Little Coffee Bean Baby Cardigan was broken. Hope it gets repaired soon!

forgot to mention I tweeked the raglan sleeves too. You have to increase 2 stitches before the marker then knit one stitch then increase a stitch after the marker. Makes for a finer , neater raglan sleeve.

I made 4 of these but I added 10 stitches at the neck edge and it became my buttonhole band. Made an easy sweater even easier. Thanks for a great pattern Sandy
