Lil Tamzin gathered yoke cardigan pattern by Katya Frankel

Please welcome, Lil Tamzin! Its big sister was popular ever since it was released in 2008 and a number of people had mentioned that they'd love to knit a matching kiddie version.

Although worked to the same gauge, Lil Tamzin is knitted in a lighter weight yarn, than Tamzin was knit in. I used some hand dyed sock / 4 ply that gave the cardigan a gentler feel and allowed for the multitude of stitches to be increased around the collar without the extra bulk.
The pattern is written for sizes 3 months trough 12 years with the finished chest circumference between 18 ¼ and 31 ¼ in / 46 and 78.5 cm, in a total of 10 sizes.

It is worked from the top down in one piece, absolutely seamlessly using 4-ply / fingering weight yarn with the only finishing required is weaving in ends and sewing on the buttons. 
I should also mention that although the cardigan is classed as an intermediate pattern, in reality, it is suitable for an advanced beginner, prepared to tackle a garment, with all the techniques and stitch patterns clearly explained in the pattern.
