K2.7 Humpty Dumpty Sweater to Knit (age 2 up)

This is one of four nursery rhyme sweaters to knit (the others are The Owl and the Pussycat, Queen of Hearts, and The Cow Jumped Over the Moon) with the design on the front and back of each sweater. Easy to follow full color stitch charts are provided for each side, and there are instructions for changing yarn colors for the intarsia design.

Because of its symmetric design, Humpty Dumpty is an easy intarsia pattern to work. If you haven't tried intarsia before, this is a good place to start!

(Sleeves are picked up from the drop shoulder and knit down to the wrist for a custom fit. This is just charming, and perhaps a very symbolically appropriate design for some young folk-- Ed.)
