The pattern includes instructions for both the tunic and the pullover!

Leksak”, meaning ”toy” in Swedish, is an intriguing top-down pullover for both boys and girls! Slightly cropped sleeves that don’t get in the way, and with a different and decorative take on the front panel. Most of the garment is worked flat, but still manages to be completely seamless. A perfect sweater for keeping the little ones warm while playing! The pattern includes instructions for both the closed pullover and the open front tunic, as well as rough instructions for lacy crochet edgings.

November 2016 - pattern updated for more clean instructions!

Leksak Lady is available for adults!
