This simple pullover was designed to make the most of the saddle shoulder yoke construction. Totally unisex, it would suit a girl as well as a boy. It is designed to be comfortably loose without being oversized, for a versatile garment little children will enjoy as much as the older kids. It is worked from the top down in the round with simple color blocks that requires only striping, one strongly contrasting color for the sleeves and two contrasting colors for the body.
A note about size: it is always a good idea to measure the size of the chest of the child the sweater is intended for before choosing a size. You can easily modify the sizing of this garment by choosing a larger or smaller chest size and working the length associated with another size, for a custom fit.
