A combination of a classic Nordic wheel pattern and Tern, a delicious yarn (75% wool and 25 % silk) from Quince & Co is the inspiration for this sweater for a small girl or boy.
The easiest way to knit stranded color work is to use circular needles and for attached sleeves the most used way is to cut the opening for the sleeves and secure the yarn by making stiches on a sewing machine or by crocheting the edges. But I find this will always look a bit ´bumpy´ especially in small sizes. To avoid this, I have chosen to knit back and forth on the top part, even though this costs some extra work.
The sleeves are knitted from the yokes to the wrists. This gives to advantages:
It makes a smoother seam at the yokes and it is easy to adjust the length of the sleeves or replace the rib if needed
