Pattern Description from Faith, Hope, Love, Knitting: “This child’s sweater is similar to the one I was knitting on that trip. It’s loose-fitting and the sleeves are meant to be rolled up or down so that a child can wear it for a few years. I also added a hood and zipper for extra ‘kid comfort.’ The design is knit back and forth, but please: If you take it with you on a plane, use circulars out of courtesy to your row mate!”
