Product Information

The Festival Sweater (for children between one and 14 years of age) is worked from the top down. The neck edge is folded and knitted together and short rows are worked to shape the neckline. After this, increases are worked evenly distributed down the circular yoke. The stripes are worked in a technique which creates small bobbles which take a little patience or a lot of patience if a less experienced knitter.
