Chris de Longpre

for Knitting at KNoon   2004


"A little-girly sweater with gentle shaping and fun detailing, to knit in a worsted weight wool or blend," says de Longpre simply. This little sweater-- to fit 3 to 10-year-olds-- has become iconic for Knitting at KNoon, with good reason. The body is worked in the round to the armholes, then split for fronts and back; sleeves are knit separately and then sewn in. The little lace pattern is very dainty and easy to do; there are wonderful videos at the company's site illustrating how to do I-cord and attached I-cord. In short, you'll want for nothing, and you will rejoice in one of the cutest A-line kids' sweaters in modern knitting history. A version for 18" dolls can be found here.
