The small ones of course need stylish design already from the beginning! Dormant Dandy features a top down yoke knitted in the round, followed by a striped body worked flat. Finish it off with an unusual front flap and a button – no seaming what so ever, and all edges are done while knitting. A quick and satisfying knit that will be finished before you know it!
