Pattern Description:

Modern Pixie Sweater is worked from the top down and is completely seamless.
I have used an amazing technique developed by Susie Myers, "contiguous set-in sleeves", that allows shoulder shaping without using short rows.

Modern Pixie Sweater launched "Touch of Magic", a series of children's sweaters designed for everyday wear, that are functional, fun, and modern.

Modern Pixie Sweater features a simple, yet stylish buttoned collar or cowl neckline, big colorful stripes, and a very simple silhouette.
The design gives you plenty of room to be creative with your colors - make it in a single color, variegated, large two tone stripes, lots of random stripes.

The sky is the limit.
