Was knit from the unravellings of another finished project.

I knew my gauge would be different from the pattern gauge from previously knitting with the yarn, so though my daughter is a petite 11 year old I made the largest size. It fits perfectly in my opinion.

Only modification was to use larger needles (5mm) for the polo neck from about half way up the neck, increasing to 6mm needles for the last quarter. Aim was to give the garment a cowl neck rather than a tight polo neck. I think it worked, though it would sit better perhaps if I’d made it longer than as per the pattern.
