This is a classic and easy Guernsey with instructions for the ENTIRE family (size 2 - adult xl). It is knit with worsted wt yarn on size 4 and 7 straight needles. The body is knit in pieces and the sleeves are knit from the shoulder down giving a drop sleeve. It looks great on everyone, from the smallest member of your family to the largest and everyone in between. I’ve seen it knit in all types of yarn and it always looks wonderful.

Happy Knitting!
Melinda
