After 2 year I’ve made my third childhood sweater - finally a tweedy one!
And I took the chance to update the pattern and add 3 more sizes.

When I saw this great colorway “storm” from Studio Meez, I know this will become my childhood sweater. It reminds me of careless and relaxing days of my childhood, when my sister and I wearing our much-loved sweaters.

CHILDHOOD is worked seamlessly from the top down. After working the collar, the neck is shaped with short rows, and the dropped saddle shoulders are formed with increases along the shoulder markers. Back and fronts are then worked separately to the base of the armhole, then rejoined and the body is worked in rounds down to the ribbing or optional rounded hem. Sleeves are picked up and worked down from the armholes to the cuff
