UKHKA 161 Aran Country Sweater (ages 4 - 12)

Magnificent Arans for kids, whether you choose the V or crewneck version. These are lushly textured throughout, with the kind of classic, emphatic stitchwork that pops even in darker colours. All the raglan decreases are properly executed one stitch in from the edges, leaving you a proper seam allowance. These are heirloom sweaters meant to be passed from one generation to the next.

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.
