Unable to download this cardigan. I have sighed up and it still doesn't work. Has it been removed????

It hasn't been removed, it must be downloaded from the pattern page when you click on the pattern link on this page.

I love how the designer has made a classic style into a modern design. The bigger ribbing adds to the look. There are so many adorable larger buttons with really cute colors now. This sweater will be a great little sweater for those fall mornings heading out to the bus. Thank you for the free down of the pattern also.

School is not even out and its time to start thinking about next years wardrobe. I love knitting for children during the summer because of the small size, they provide a lot of bulk and are always so portable. This special sweater has some nice eyelets along the raglan increase and the small red stripe near the cuffs and hem is darling. The patter also has a nice selection of size for your school girls.
