This simple cardigan features a cable along each front border, and also in the centre of the sleeves. The back is plain stocking stich, so this is a pattern for those who want to make a cardigan which doesn’t take long to knit, but which still has some pretty detail. It doesn’t have to be just for girls either, just change the buttonholes to the other side and make it in a neutral colour for the little lad in your life. Sorcha (pronounced “Sore-sha”) means bright, or radiant.

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.
