Texture & Stripes is an easy to knit pullover which is suitable for both boys and girls and available in sizes from 1 to 10 years. It is worked in one piece from the top down with raglan shaping for the sleeves and is completely seamless.
The simple texture pattern keeps the knitting interesting and stripes mean it can be easily customized by changing the colour combination – why not use team colours, a gradient or your child’s favourite colours?
