PATTERN NOTES
What was the name of your childhood imaginary friend? Did she/he look anything like this? The color-blocked sleeves and body provide the perfect canvas for you to make this sweater your own. After completing the sweater, it could be a fun exercise to work with your child to design a face that represents her or his own imaginary friend.

This sweater is worked flat from the bottom up and seamed. After seaming, stitches are picked up along the neck edge and the neckband is worked in the round. After finishing the Front, the Front Pocket is added by picking up stitches along the hem and worked upward.
