Notes: A classic design knit in from the bottom up in three sizes. The lower body and sleeve edges are a simple lace stitch with stockinette for the top and sleeves. Edges are knit in Seed stitch. German short rows are used for subtle neck shaping. The small gauge makes this sweater comfortable and practical for adding layers to little ones, without adding bulk. The nearly seamless construction adds comfort as well as being a time saver for the busy knitter. This project is recommended for intermediate knitters and advanced beginners.
