Simple, classic, easy to embellish however you desire. Big Thom is the older version of Thom with a “TH”, for children 4 to 12 years old. This is the perfect pattern for someone ready to tackle their first sweater, with a top-down seamless construction. It is also extremely versatile for those a little more adventurous: add stripes or color work, cables or texture - the possibilities are endless.
