Carousel Sweater kit is a great top-down pattern sized for 3 months up to 8 years. Perfect for the baby or child in your life. Pattern has options for sleeves or sleeveless, with pockets or without. Customize your sweater with the 'bits' of yarn included for the top yoke detail. Use one or all of five colors provided.
Kit A - Size 3 months
Kit B - Sizes 6 months, 12 month, 18 month, 2 years, 4 years
Kit C - Sizes 6 years, 8 years
Note! Highly recommended to choose a size larger than the current age of the recipient. Knitting takes time, and they only grow. Also see note about needle sizes below.
- 1-3 skeins Tahki Classic Superwash Yarn, 100% wool, machine wash and dry
- Carousel sweater pattern by Frogginette
- 5 bits of Tahki yarn for yoke
Other materials necessary:
- Pattern calls for US 8 and US 6 in 24" circular length and double pointed needles
- Note: for this yarn I got gauge using a US 7 and US 5 needle, the sweater came out slightly smaller than the intended measurements. My notes are included in the pattern. My advice is to order a size larger than the intended child is right now.
- 3-4 buttons, optional 2 buttons for pockets
