Children love to run and jump and are in constant motion. Even in winter, they never seem to get very cold!
Because of this I have designed a lightweight sweater from sock yarn that is knit at a loose gauge. This creates a sweater that is easy to wear and can be thrown in the washing machine will no ill effects. If you want to create a slightly heavier sweater, I would suggest using a sport weight yarn that knits up at the same gauge.
Knit from the top down, this zig-zag yoked pullover is knit all in one piece so you will have minimal finishing when the knitting is done.
