I knit my sweater in Must Stash Yarn Sweater Weather. The Little Worsted Sock Arms pullover is the same fun construction and fit found in the Little Sock Arms, butQUICKER TO KNIT.

This sweater is all about color play! This sweater is perfect (and specifically designed) for self-striping and gradient yarns. It’s also great for pairing solids, tonals, and variegated skeins. There are so many yarn options. The specially modified, set-in sleeves are SEAMLESS and simple to knit. The modified sleeve cap allows for uninterrupted stripes on your sleeves. FUN SLEEVES! This sweater is knit from the bottom up, in the round. It includes instructions for adjusting the circumference of the sleeves and the fit of the body. The Little Worsted Sock Arms also includes a rounded hemline.

FINAL NOTE: I know I posted A LOT of photos, but that’s just because my kids are really cute. I know I’m biased, but seriously. They are adorable and I rarely see them standing still. It’s important to share these sorts of triumphs. Most of my photos were blurry from cartwheels and bouncing. ;)
