Perfect for children to wear to school and is good for boys and girls! Very easy to knit! Made in one piece! The easy shaping and fit is just what children want. They like easy fitting garments, without tugs and pulls and tightness. This will not give them that tightness; it fits over just about any top or shirt. Uses sport weight yarns, knitting needles US # 5, and # 7. It has a delightful stripe pattern, or knit this up in a plain color. You will find this is so fun and easy to knit, that you will want to make up several, in different colors!
