Ardan baby and toddler sweater, PDF knitting pattern


This pattern will arrive in your inbox from - please check your junk folder just in case! Most people receive their patterns pretty quickly, but depending on where you are in the world, I ask that you give up to 12 hours for delivery.

This little sweater features a double moss-filled cross-over chevron at the centre of the front and back, the remainder being worked in stocking stitch. This makes a lighter sweater than a full aran, and gives you enough detail to work with if you are new to the cable needle. Make it in a neutral colour for an every-day play sweater, or use pastel or stained-glass colours with fancier buttons for a dressed-up look. The chevron pattern is also featured on the roomy little hat. Ardan is pronounced “are-dawn” and means “high aspiration.”

To keep postage costs down for the buyer, I ship by the most economical method - unless the buyer is in a rush, then I will find the expedient way.

I ship from Canada, and small packages must fit through a slot at the post office in order to qualify for reasonable postage rates. For example, a pair of earrings in a small jewellery box will cost four times the postage as the same pair wrapped securely in bubble wrap and tissue paper - even if both packages weigh the same. For this reason, I will not use jewellery boxes when shipping.

Unless something is damaged in shipping, I will not do returns nor exchanges.
