Spring is a tough time when you're a kid. Winter is slowly easing its way out, the days are getting longer and warmer, and there's so much going on outside! But your parents refuse to let you out without a heavy coat on, thereby ruining your expeditions to the sandbox, the local mud bog, or wherever else your next adventure takes you.
This easy rollneck sweater can solve your problem – lightweight and easy to move around in, but it keeps Mom and Dad from worrying you'll come down with pneumonia. The body is knit in the round up to the armholes and put on holders while the sleeves are knitted to the same point. Then all the stitches are joined together to knit the yoke. The only finishing is grafitng the underarm stitches at the end.
Skills needed: Casting on, knitting in the round, decreasing, binding off, grafting.
Gauge: 22 sts/30 rounds over 4 in/10 cm in stockinette.
