Anker's Sweater - Junior
This pattern is in English.
Anker’s Sweater – Junior is worked top-down. The yoke consists of segments of rib stitch with increases followed by classic raglan increases. The sleeves are worked at the end on double pointed needles or using the Magic Loop technique. Pick the size that matches the child’s chest width. You can easily adjust the length of the sweater by knitting the sleeves and body shorter or longer. If you want to keep the neck opening tight you can sew a thin elastic on the inside of the neck rib.
