I love the look of shawl collars but they rarely fit over my son’s giant head. The neck on this sweater is specially constructed to fit over the biggest of little heads while maintaining the look of a typical shawl collar and is designed with 2 inches of positive ease for room to grow.

The sweater body is knit flat and seamed. Sleeves are knit in the round separately and attached to the sweater before picking up stitches for the collar.

Techniques used: short row shaping, seaming, picking up stitches.
