Alexandre II

The baby boy you knitted cache-cœur cardigan Alexandre has grown up to a big boy? Here’s the cardigan for him!
Alexandre II (the second) is slightly different from Alexandre the first: It’s still striped but in regular Stockinette stitch and worked from the top down, seamlessly.
The cut is slimmer than classic boy’s cardigans for a chic, modern look.
