For the child that loves to be outdoors running around, this sweater is for her. It’s made to be a bit baggy, so there will be no worrying about them outgrowing it in one season. And by using bulky yarn you will know she is warm while out at play – even if she forgets her jacket!

FINISHED SIZES

I used Red Heart Heads Up for my green sample, but that has been discontinued. My testers used other #5 and were happy with their results.
