Mini Boyfriend Cardigan-Valentine’s Style

Mini Boyfriend Cardigan-Valentine’s Style

I really love Valentine’s Day.  I love how excited my kids get for this fun little holiday.
Emily has loved her heart tees (here and here) I have made her for the past couple of years…
But this year I wanted to do something a bit different.
She loves my cardigans that I pretty much wear every day… So I thought I would make her one… with a Valentine’s twist!
Yes, oversized heart pockets.
She loves them.
If you don’t have time to make one for Valentine’s Day, you can omit the pockets- it doesn’t really matter.
This cute little cardigan is a pretty quick project- it is identical to the mommy-sized one I made.
I made the pattern so it can be long sleeves (make it out of a repurposed sweater or sweater knit) or 3/4 sleeves for a spring/summer/fall cardigan made out of jersey.
Thanks for stopping by!
