There is a lovely old Paton's pattern that is available online for a girl's lace cardigan. There is also a matching cardigan for mother. The pattern can be found here
I knitted this one in Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 8 ply yarn in the colour Coastal Blue.
i found this pattern for a vest in an old Patons Book - No 952. This has a number of children's patterns for ages 2 - 10 years. I chose pattern no 6 and used an 8 ply wool which was a lovely blend of Bamboo and pure wool from Bendigo Woollen Mill's Stellar range in the colour smokey Quartz. I used a little navy blue to create the stripe on the neckline and ribbands. The central cables make this a lovely design. I am told that Emeric is really enjoying wearing it.
