Drambuie Children’s Cardigan Knitting Pattern
Drambuie is a wonderful cardigan for either a little boy or a little girl. Cute details such as basketweave stitch details, raglan seams and tiny pockets add ‘aww’ factor to a straight forward cardie. Add cute factor for a little girl with different buttons or even embroidery!
