This pullover begins with a vertical cable strip which wraps around the chest, and then the body and yoke are picked up and knitted on. The
overlapped boat neck insures an easy on/off fit. Pair it with the matching beanie and it becomes a great fall sweater set.

I am a self taught designer, having spent many hours researching and reading about the skills needed to learn clothing design. Having had much experience sewing, gave me a lot of knowledge about how clothing is constructed, which is an essential skill in being able to design. Experience knitting, gave me the tools I needed to master knitting techniques and be able to shape the fabric in the way I want. Learning is an ongoing pastime, there are always new techniques to master.
I design clothing for children ranging in age from Newborn to about 18months and I am now beginning to expand my line to include older childrens sizes up to about 10 years.
I have been published in Knit Circus Magazine and also in Petite Purls, in addition to self publishing some designs.
