111 Henley Top Down Pullover (2 - 12)

"This nice pullover looks good on girls or boys," says modest Soucy. "Uses worsted weight yarn at a gauge of 18 sts to 4 inches in sizes 2 to 12." A top-down Henley neck is a rarity, and Soucy does it up beautifully here. You begin working back and forth for the neckline, and once that's done, you continue in the round. Raglan sleeves are worked in the round down to the cuff, allowing you to customize the length. No sewing at all, unless you count attaching the buttons.

Soucy offers a very detailed, illustrated knit-along guide to her top-down sweaters here.

Sleeve length is ok, you can make it shorter if you like.

Are there any errata? The 2 y.o. sleeve length - 11 1/2 inches from underarm - seems verrrrry long to me. With a chest width of 26", this means the poor toddler's "wingspan" will be 49" cuff to cuff!! Can anyone confirm or reassure, or correct? Otherwise, I love it and plan to make many versions!
