This long-sleeved pullover is sure to please your little girl. Perfect for her back-to-school wardrobe! It is knit from the top-down and includes a raglan yoke and a waistband - creating a smooth transition from the yoke to the body. The button bands are picked up after the body of the sweater has been completed. The center front features a pleat just below the waistband, adding just a touch of frill.

Sizes available:
Girl’s size 1 (2, 3, 4, 5)(6, 8, 10, 12)

Pattern Difficulty: Easy to Moderate

Yarn - I used Spud and Chloe Sweater, which is a Cotton/Wool blend. I would recommend the following amounts for each of the sizes, though I am not yet sure if this amount is correct or not:
3 (3, 3, 4, 4)(4, 4, 4, 5) skeins; 160 yards per skein.

Buttons - as many as you need - about 5/8”
