Jelly Beans Kids Sweater

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Colorwork
  • knitting in the round (for the sleeves)

Pattern Description:

What could be cuter than a sweet cardigan - for a boy or a girl - decorated with bright colored jelly beans?
These simple stitches combine to give an interesting architectural look to the sweater, while being easy enough for a novice knitter. Great introduction to stranded colorwork (Fair Isle).
The sweater is playful and sweet.
Garter stitch cuffs are designed to be turned up if sleeves are too long; the child can grow into it.
The body is in stockinette stitch and the yoke is a simple ribbed pattern.

Note: Sweater in photo is size 4, on a 2 year old child.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Child sizes 2 [4, 6, 8] years


  • Worsted weight yarn, 400-600 yds
