SIZES
for babies & children:
3 months (6 mo, 12 mo, 2T, 4, 6, 8, 10)
Finished Chest Circumference: 18 1/2 (19 1/2, 22, 25, 27, 29, 31 1/2, 32 1/2)” / 47.5 ( 49.5, 55.5, 64, 68, 74, 78, 82) cm
Shown in size 6 on a 22.5” chest with 6” ease. The fabric will be a little thicker (and warmer!) due to the stranded patterns, so I recommend selecting a size with a extra ease (at least 2” to 6” larger than actual chest measurement.)

GAUGE
20 sts and 24 rows = 4”/ 10cm in stockinette, and in stranded stockinette on larger needles after blocking. To ensure proper fit, please take time to check gauge in stockinette and in colorwork pattern.

NOTES
Pixel Play Pullover is a colorful stranded sweater for children. It is worked from the top down using the contiguous set-in-sleeve method developed by Susie Myers (SusieM on Ravelry). It is mostly knit in the round.

The baby version of the sweater (sizes 3 mo to 12 mo) will only have two chart repeats worked. The sleeves will be solid and worked in Color 2. The baby sweater’s neckline is finished with a stretchy rolled hem.
