Pattern Description:

Looking for the perfect piece of knitwear for your aspiring little hero? This raglan-style pullover features a motif of fire engines racing across the body, sure to delight any action-loving little one. A button placket placed along one raglan seam allows for plenty of head and neck room. Both the sleeves and body are knit in the round, the body is then divided and the front and back portions of the yoke are worked flat. Skills required to knit this pattern include increasing, decreasing, ability to read a color chart and work with two colors of yarn in a single row. Some seaming is also required.

Gauge:

25 sts x 26 rows = 4" (10 cm) in both plain and patterned stst. Because stranded colorwork tends to pull knitting in, the recommended needle size for the body of the pullover is a US 7(4.5 mm), while the recommended needle size for sleeves is a US 6 (4 mm). Be sure to check your gauge and adjust needle sizes as needed to obtain the correct gauge in both stranded and single color stst.

I've been into DIY since I was little, but these days my main craft is knitting. My mother taught me the basics when I was eleven, and after several years of neglect I picked it up again at university. When I can squeeze it around my day job, I love to come up with knitting patterns, you can check out what I've got in development over on my blog, www.studiomarlowe.com
