Mini Sweater is the children’s version of our women’s style: Summer Sweater. You can see this version here.
Mini Sweater is knit flat in pieces, from the bottom up. You will separately knit front and back panels before seaming them together at the shoulders. Next, you will pick up stitches for the armholes and knit the sleeves before seaming the sides beneath the arms. Finally, you will pick up stitches for the ribbed neckband.
This listing is for the pattern only. After checkout, you will receive a digital copy of the pattern by email.
