Picking the colors is twice the fun when they are knit together for surprising effects. Little Glow Pullover is a children’s chunky knit sweater with faux cabled details and alternating color blocked stripes worked with two strands of yarn alternating three colors for subtle color shifts and intriguing flecked effects. Top down and seamless, and shaped with a loose fit, it’s a sweater that is a joy to knit and wear.

NOTES
Little Glow Pullover is knit seamlessly from the top down. The collar stitches are cast on and worked first and then raglan increases are made for the shoulders and simultaneously short row shaping drops and curves the neckline. The sweater is knit in the round down to the hem.
Sleeve stitches are held on waste yarn and slipped to a needle after the body is completed, and knit top-down and in the round.
Some positive ease is recommended for a comfortable and easy fit.
