NHK15-2 Elephant (ages 2 - 12)

A joy of a pattern, not least because you get two designs for the price of one. But this is how we want to see kids: not wearing scaled-down versions of dull grownup wear, but in simple shapes jazzed up in sweet, playful ways. Both garments are easy to knit and wearable almost anywhere except (maybe) funerals. Each are drop-shouldered with flat sleeve tops; each incorporates small amounts of stitch/colour interest (cables and fair isle for the lads, and the lace ruffle for the ladies). Both designs provide great templates for knitterly fun. From Nashua Handknits Book 15, Zoo.
