This sweater was born from a need for a no-fuss extra layer - and quickly! Brooklyn Tweed’s Quarry is a beautifully light, bulky weight yarn, which knits up fast but doesn’t result in a heavy sweater, perfect for our active children!
Bracken is a simple top-down raglan sweater with the added detail of switching between contrasting needle sizes every row to give the reverse stockinette fabric two row furrows. The boy option is a classic fit and style, whereas the girl option adds in some A-line shaping and a dropped back hem - all without compromising the major cozy factor. A staple sweater every child’s woolly wardrobe needs! - Annie


Materials
1 (2, 2, 2, 2)(3, 3, 3, 4) skeins Brooklyn Tweed Quarry; 100% wool; 200 yds, 100 gms, Boy version shown in ””Lazulite”, Girls version in “Sulphur”, or, 187 (239, 275, 322, 380)(436, 509, 548, 643) yds / 171 (219, 252, 295, 348)(399, 466, 502, 588) meters bulky weight yarn.

Finished Chest
Chest: 19 (20.25, 21, 22.25, 23.5)(24.5, 26.5, 27.75, 29.5)” / 48.5 (51.5, 53.5, 56.5, 59.5)(62, 67.5, 70.5, 75) cm

Notes
Sweater is worked top down, completely in stockinette stitch, and inside out! This is a close fitting design so I recommend choosing a size based on chest size, and referring to the schematic. The boy style is based off the girl’s slim-fit so you might consider going up a size for a more relaxed boy fit.
To make the sweater completely reversible use the split-slice join, as suggested by Brooklyn Tweed.
