UKHKA 54 Sweater & Jacket (birth - age 6)
These invaluable pieces are cut nice and roomy (a good 2" larger than a standard sweater size), with big patch pockets to warm the hands. In the case of the hooded sweater, you are even given a kangaroo pocket, in which the child's hands can hold themselves-- fun and even more warming. Armholes are indented once and sleeve tops are flat, for really easy knitting (and a modified drop shoulder). These pieces, just right for season transitions and coller nights with warmer days, will look wonderful in any style of DK at all.
From the publisher: "The main aim of the UK Hand Knitting Association (UKHKA) is to raise the profile of hand knitting. It does this through 'Learn to Knit' classes held throughout the UK, 'Relax and Knit' stands at all the principal UK Knitting and Sewing shows, and by the introduction of National Competitions showcased at the Knitting and Sewing shows." To this end, no specific yarn is recommended-- just choose the appropriate weight of something you like and make sure you meet the gauge requirements.
