Good Great Pattern  April 11, 2012

This is an excellent pattern for kids and gives the sleeveless and full sleeved versions both. I chose the former for my kid since it would be a great spring go to piece. He loves it and always keeps his hood on when he wears it.

I was 4 when my grandmother taught me to knit. I have since enjoyed all sorts of needle work; crochet, cross stitch, needlepoint, quilting. However, my love is knitting and designing seamless and classic garments for children :)
