Boys CAN wear pink, and look good doing it! I have ingrained this upon my boys and will continue to do so as they get older. Putting a tie on a pink sweater is a great way to design a knit garment that leaves no doubts about for which gender it was intended. • Sweater is worked in the round from the bottom up. Sleeves are also knit in the round and joined seamlessly during the knit; options are included for both short and long sleeve. • Garment is designed to be fitted, if you prefer a looser fit, consider sizing up. Tie is worked back and forth as an embellishment and stitched onto sweater once knitting is complete. Shown in long sleeves size 18 months & short sleeves size 2.
