Little Boxy is a very simple modern sweater, with a very wide body and skinny sleeves. Worked with a lightweight yarn it is very flattering, drapey and stylish!
A little short row section in the shoulders adds an interesting texture to the sleeves.
Any fashionable little girl needs one of these in her wardrobe (especially if her Mom has a matching Boxy herself)…

SIZES
6 mo (1y, 2y, 4y, 6y, 8y, 10, 12y). Shown in size 4y on a 3 year old little angel.
To fit a chest size of approx 18 (20, 22, 24, 26, 27, 28, 30) inches; 45 (50, 55, 60, 65, 67.5, 70, 75) cm.
Different amounts of positive ease are recommended depending on the size chosen. Sizes are generous so that the sweater can fit your little girl for a longer time. The style is intended to be just a little bit cropped (for a more modern look), but if you prefer you can easily adjust the length by knitting more before dividing for the armholes.
