Make several of these quick-knits for gift giving. Only 1 skein of yarn (3.5oz.) of number 4 medium yarn is needed. This design uses the same instructions for Toddler to Teen sizes, only the needles are different. It is knitted in one piece from sleeve edge to sleeve edge, seamed on the sides. This makes for a very "stretchy" garment. Lots of wear possibilities. Two sizes: the toddler size fits 21"-24" chest measurements and the teen size fits chest measurements 26"-28".
Size 11 needles Pattern Yarn Gauge: 3 sts = 1 inch , 3.5 rows = 1 inch
Size 13 needles Pattern Yarn Gauge:2.5 sts= 1 inch, 3 rows= 1 inch
I have been knitting and crocheting for over 55 years, having learned at the age of 5. After retiring in 2011, I am able to pursue my dream of designing my own patterns and sharing them. Thank you for looking and join us at Knitting Paradise http://www.knittingparadise.com/ for lots of fun and information.
