This stranded sweater was first designed and knit for my daughters to wear for Christmas. It is tunic length and looks great over leggings. It is available in two sizes – 2T/3T and 4T/5T, and it is easy to add or remove length for a custom fit. In addition, the sweater length and the sleeve lengths are easily adjusted for a different look. I used a soft machine-washable wool/nylon blend and the colors held just fine during blocking. It is knit in the round with no seams. I hope you enjoy knitting it as much as I did!
