No Frills Sweater Junior is a simple raglan sweater with neckline shaping at the front. The No Frills Sweater Junior is worked from the top down, which makes it easy to try it on the child along the way. If you want to make sure that the rib neck edge keeps it shape over time, you can sew a thin elastic thread along the edge.
