This sweater has several great features: it is knit in the round and has no seams to sew up when finished. It can be worn by a small baby 6-9 months and will fit this child until about 3-4 years. To fit a small baby the sweater can be worn with a large collar which can also double for a hood, as the child grows. To fit a larger child the sweater can be turned around having a smaller collar, this way the sweater fits more like a bolero. The long cuffed sleeves are worn rolled for the baby and unrolled as the child grows.

Originally offered by elann.com as a free pattern. Visit international.elann.com to see currently available free patterns.

Over the years elann.com has offered a variety of free patterns to showcase elann brand yarns – this was one of them. As elann’s new site, international.elann.com, develops, many of these longtime favorite designs will be re-formatted and made available for purchase. This will be a time-consuming process, which we hope to accomplish by the end of 2015, so we ask for your patience. 

Throughout this process, on a rotating basis, we’ll be offering 6 free patterns per month at international.elann.com. They’ll be free for one month, and then subsequently available for purchase as .pdf downloads. We encourage you to visit international.elann.com often to see our latest offerings.
