This is a great little sweater for playing outside on chilly days. Kids will love the colorful stripes!
The combination of worsted and chunky weight gives the garter-stitch stripes a nice 3-D look as they are raised from the surface.
Knit in one piece from the bottom up, it uses raglan shaping and has no seams.
The raglan sleeve shaping is easy to do and makes a comfy garment.
