Betsy Summer Cardigan

Designed for us by Amanda Jones, this sweet little girl's lace cardigan is the perfect cover up for a summer dress. We think it would be perfect for a bridesmaid or flower girl too. Modelled here by Lottie, this is only available in the pink melange shade shown. The Betsy Summer Cardigan knitting kit with matching bag is available in these sizes: age 2-3, 4-5, 6-7 and 8-9 from £22.95.
