Little ones will look sharp in this graphic take on a traditional colorwork sweater, inspired by the mountains near my niece’s home. A simple but striking one-color pattern is knit across the yoke of this sweater, making it equally appropriate for boys or girls! The sweater is finished with garter edges, including a split hem and a button at the back neck, to make the sweater easy to pull on and off.
The sweater is worked in one piece from the bottom up. The body is knit first, and then the sleeves are knit and joined to the body to form the yoke. Choose a solid or semi-solid color for the body and a contrasting solid color for the colorwork to really make the motifs pop.
