This cowl neck sweater for girls exudes warmth and sophistication. The sweater is sleeveless but has armhole, shoulder, and neck shaping for a good fit. It is knit in the round from the bottom up until the underarms, and then knit back and forth to the shoulders. The shoulders are joined with a three needle bind off, and the textured cowl neck is picked up and knit in the round. The armholes are finished with simple crochet. Knit in a bulky yarn, it’s a project that will give you quick satisfaction.

SIZING
Finished chest measurements for the sweater are:
26” (28, 30, 32, 34)” / 66 (71, 76, 81.5, 86.5) cm
These measurements correspond with the following sizes: 6/6x (7/8, 10, 12, and 14/16).
Sizes are approximate. This sweater is meant to be worn with 1-2” / 2.5-5 cm positive ease, so it’s best to use your child’s measurement as a starting point.
