MacKenzie is inspired by the practical wee pullovers–or jerseys as they are called here in New Zealand–worn by rural kids and adults alike.
MacKenzie is a versatile pattern which can be knitted in solid, semi-solid or variegated yarn. Written in sixteen sizes from Newborn to 12 years, MacKenzie is suitable for boys and girls.There is an option for a collar. Completely seamless, the pattern is available in Sport/5ply yarn. There are also an option to purchase it in either Fingering/4ply or DK/8ply as well either separately for $5.00 or in the Mackenzie ebook for $8.00.

Gauge: 24 sts and 32 rows = 4 inches/10 cm in stockinette.

Please take the time to knit a swatch before beginning this project. It is also important to wash and block your swatch to ensure the best fit possible.

To ensure the best fit, please knit the size of your child’s chest measurement, rather than their age, and add or subtract length for their age. For example my 5yr daughter fits a 2yr size with a 21inch chest but it is knitted to the 5yr old length. There is approximately 2 inches (5cm) of positive ease included in this pattern for a relaxed fit which makes it great for layering.
