wee Liesl

Feather and fan seamless cardigan for babies and toddlers
A tiny version of one of Ysolda's most popular women's sweater designs. Liesl is a round yoked cardigan worked from the neck down in a simple allover feather and fan lace pattern. Shown in a luxurious wool and silk blend sportweight yarn that's surprisingly easy to care for; Liesl would be beautiful as part of a special occasion outfit but it's just as at home playing on the forest floor.
