Notes

This pattern is the best! Nice and plain, and a great springboard for your imagination.

I prefer a fitted neck on children’s sweaters so I cast on for the size 3/4 for the neck only, then proceeded to make the 5/6. Ribbing knit in wool is very stretchy and there is still plenty of head room but is nice and snug and warm. He is a big 4 year old, but I wanted plenty of growing room and we roll up the sleeves for now.

I bought the natural colored yarn on a recent trip to Cambria. Cambria is a lovely little beach town on California’s central coast, with nice restaurants, a pretty beach and a yarn store! The Simplicity Spray was very nice but I ran out and had to use some stash white. I knew I was going to stripe it, but didn’t want just black stripes. Love the brown with the black. The sweater is soft enough for my grandson. smiley
