This striped sweater has been designed to fit sizes 0-3 months, 3-6 months and 6-12 months. It is knitted in four pieces: back, front and two sleeves. The sweater is knitted with a self-striping wool for the front and back, enhanced by two contrasting but complementary sleeves. There is a button band on the right shoulder to give a larger opening for baby’s head to fit through comfortably. Two buttons are included in this kit. Instructions are given for the three sizes and sufficient wool is provided for the largest size.
This sweater kit is available in two colourways — Rainbow and Berry.
The sweater is knitted in machine washable British wool from West Yorkshire Spinners. To quote their strapline: ‘Reared, Sheared and Spun in Britain’. The ball band states that this yarn is machine washable at 40°C. Tumble drying is not recommended.
To knit this sweater you will need a pair of 3.5 mm straight needles. A 3.5 mm circular needle (or set of dpns) is required for the neckline.
