Sunset Cardigan for the babes and kids

As promised, today I release the Sunset Cardigan!  For those of you who love Knitbot Yoked, here is a miniature Fair Isle cardigan for the little ones in your life.  Mabel has been wearing it for a month or so as her outdoor layer and I have to say the Owl wears so well.  Of course she's gotten jelly and dirt on it, but it handwashes easily and looks good as new.
