the sweater

top-down raglan: fullfront

pattern:  Children’s Neck Down Pullover #9730 from Knitting Pure & Simple
yarn:  Tahki Shannon & Brown Sheep Worsted
needles:  Clover Bamboo
cast on:  May 2007   cast off:  June 2007
notes:  This was a dream to knit, love this pattern.  I did make a few changes; eliminated the rolled hems and neckline and replaced them with 2×2 ribbing, and added two rows and bindoff in the orange contrasting yarn.  I love the effect of the contrasting yarn, adds a little bit of something to an otherwise plain sweater.  The sweater was made up in the 6-8 size, just enough growing room so it may last two, or even three, years.

  1. What a coincidence! I just made this same pattern in size 2-4 for my nephew’s birthday. I was looking on Ravelry at others’ top-down raglan and came across yours! It’s gorgeous. Don’t you just love the pattern?
