TAMA…is a boy - a classic raglan sweater with clean sharp lines, and a focal buttonband running along the raglan increase.

The pattern is top-down, seamless in construction and offers a wonderful blank canvas should one decide to embellish.

TAMA…is a boy is the free version of the TAMA sweater.
This free version is written for 10ply/Light Worsted weight yarn, to fit a child with a chest circumference of 57.5cm (approx 4 years of age). The finished chest circumference of the garment is 62.5cm.

PS - wondering how to say the name of this pattern, or exactly what it means? The designer comes from New Zealand where the second national language is Maori.
This week (July 4th - 10th) is Maori Language week; a chance to celebrate the native tongue of our country.
Tama is a Maori word meaning ‘boy’ or ‘son’, pronounced ‘taah-maah’.
