A classic sporty designer knitting pattern for little athletes.
Complimentary StitchSaver™ Row Checker
Have fun making this sweater for any young athlete or sports fan. The design draws from the traditional athletic look but is styled for a modern feel. You can chose extra fine merino wool or a comfy cotton blend. Both make it very wearable with a shirt or a t-shirt.
The sleeves and body are knitted separately in stockinette, then sewn together to create a classic crewneck. Both the upper body and sleeves are worked flat from the top down—casting on at the neck edge and knitting to the bottom of the armhole. Then the lower body and sleeves are worked in the round from the armhole to the cuff and hem.
This pattern includes a list of all abbreviations and a glossary of terms. It is accompanied by our proprietary StitchSaver™ Row Checker. Plus, a link is provided to Knitting Help on our web site.
StitchSaver™ Row Checker
"It is hard to make a mistake with our unique complimentary Row Checker. It helps you keep track of stitch count row-by-row for each section of the pattern, plus all increase and decrease shaping. With check off boxes for each row you can put this project aside for a week, a month or a year and return to the exact spot where you stopped." - James
