BADGER SWEATER is a soft and warm sweater that is worked from the top down. An Italian cast-on is worked at the neck edge, which is followed by a twisted rib edge and a circular yoke worked in a charted stranded pattern. Short rows are worked before the yoke is divided for body and sleeves to create roominess and a good fit. The stranded pattern is worked from the right side only, so this design is a good project for a knitter without much experience with stranded knitting. If you would like a slightly less advanced project, the Italian cast-on can be replaced by a regular long-tail cast-on. Just take care not to cast on too tightly. The Italian bind-off can also be replaced by a regular bind-off.Each yarn pack contains the amount of yarn needed to complete the project in the selected size.Knitting pattern not included in the wool kit.Sizes: 2 (4) 6 (8) years Bust circumference: 64 (72) 78 (84) cm Length: 36 (39) 42 (45) cm Sleeve length: 20 (25) 28 (30) cm Needles (not included):Double-pointed needles: 4,5 mm, 5 mm and 6 mm Circular needles: 4,5 mm, 5 mm and 6 mm, 40 and 60 cm Optional: A 4,5 mm straight needle for the Italian cast-on NOTE: You may want to increase the needle size by one size (+1 mm) when knitting a stranded pattern to get the same gauge as when working in stockinette stitch. Whether the stitch gauge changes when knitting with more than one colour varies from knitter to knitter. So remember that it is a good idea to knit a sample before you start the project.
