It is a perfect cardigan for all knitters who wish to destash, you just need to pick at least 3 colorways in the same DK weight (or sport - depending on the way you knit) and watch it grow on your needles. Yarn choices may be numerous, from cotton to wool. It will look great in three colors, stripes, or in verigated yarn. It’s up to you!

 

What’s more you can freely choose what kind of Beetle you wish to make. Warm and comfy Beetle with long sleeves to keep your kiddo warm at kindergarten or on a walk on chilly fall evening, or cotton short-sleeved cardi to protect your child from wind during long walks by the sea in the summer. You can even skip the hood. :-) The pattern has detailed descriptions for 4 versions: with long sleeves, short sleeves, with a hood or a collar.
