This fun child’s sweater is inspired by the meandering mowed path through a field of wildflowers near our home. The field is alive with butterflies in the summer and the sky is a brilliant blue. The path might meander, but my high-energy four year old takes it at top speed. Like my daughter, this knit is a fast one. It is knit in one piece from the top down, with meandering cabled accents on the sleeves.
