Wingin’ it, kid sized.
No need for seamed raglans, am I right? Converting to seamless.
But I’ll figure that out later; starting bottom up.
C/o 140
rib for 3/4” flat. keep 4 welts each edge, the rest in st st.
join in round after 4”.
No ‘wedge’ insert; just bobbles to join the split.

Keep on keepin’ on knittin’ round and round and round we go. Perfect for bus rides.

7/23 Sleeves; cast on 49 sts 2x2 rib (plus one seam st - s/b two but oh well), flat, two at a time, cuff up.

Cast off 3 sts each side. Decr 6 for underarms of body. Join sleeves to body and work in rnd.

Decr for raglans every 2nd round 1st at eight points, with 8sts in between decrease markers.

Update 10/02
So it is knit it up to neck, she says she wants a vee-neck. Then she said she didn’t want it at all. And it was too short. Fickle 8 year olds. Tried again. she said it was itchy and the sleeves were too tight. Hence the squirmy pictures. ‘it’s itcheeeeeee”.

Tried it on the 4.5 yo and it fits except for the neck being too wide… perhaps I’ll just finish it and see who will wear it. ….

Started the neck following the rib patt of the body, but halfway up decided to do it in rib. dropped the sts down and rehooked them up in 2X2 rib.

Nov 9 Done. Convinced, no; bribed DD to try it on for photos and she declared that she likes it now. And it is not itchy afterall.
I’ll say it again; fickle 8 year olds.

Woot; made Modification Mondays!
