Pattern Description:

Nibling is the non-gender specific word for your siblings' kids, nieces and nephews alike. In my life, these are some very knitworthy young folks!
The Nibling sweater begins with the collar, followed by short rows with raglan increases to sculpt the yoke. Arms are
divided, and shaping options are provided for boys' and girls' versions. Button bands are worked with the hem and
the sleeves are gently shaped. Best part, there's very little finishing!
