Knitted with worsted weight yarn, this unisex sweater is a perfect staple for any child wardrobe.

Terra Sweater is knitted bottom up with fancy cables and stripe stitch combination with minimum shaping. There are two options of shoulder: a) with buttons for small kids and b) with no buttons. For the option a), the front and back are knitted the same excluding buttonholes. For the option b), the back is knitted without shoulder part, so the shoulder seams should be made. After the front and back are completed the stitches are picked up along the side edges for the sleeves. The buttonholes can be replaced with fastener snaps and shoulders can be decorated with buttons.
