This fun child's sweater is inspired by the meandering mowed path through a field of wildflowers near our home. The field is alive with butterflies in the summer and the sky is a brilliant blue. The path might meander, but my high-energy four year old takes it at top speed. Like my daughter, this knit is a fast one. It is knit in one piece from the top down, with meandering cabled accents on the sleeves. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY cables, knitting in the round, increases and decreases GAUGE 16 stitches and 20 rows = 4 inches in stockinette SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS child sizes 2, 4, 6, 8
