Children love to run, jump and are in constant motion. Even in winter they never seem to get very cold! Because of this I have designed a lightweight sweater from sock yarn that is knit at a loose gauge. This creates a sweater that is easy to wear and can be thrown in the washing machine will no ill effect!
If you want to create a slightly heavier sweater I would suggest using a sports weight yarn that knits up at the same gauge. Knit from the top down, this zig-zag yoked ribbing pullover is knit all in one piece so you will have minimal finishing when the knitting is done.
2-3 inches of positive ease recommended.
