This easy cardigan pattern is available in a large range of sizes. It's the Julia cardigan by Mouse House Creations. I personally am going to make about 5 of these because I love short-sleeve cardigans in the summer!

Pinafore for Girls

The cross back pinafore is one of my favorites for summer playtime. It's so cute and easy to slip on and it lets kiddos get as messy as they want!

I would recommend checking out her other patterns too ... they're adorable!
