Alexandre II in English

You have loved the baby cache-cœur cardigan Alexandre and the baby you knitted it for has grown up to a big boy? Here’s a new 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.
