Rain City Kid
Your child might want to eat and sleep in this bright sweater. The seams are knit-in using colourful garter stitch bands and the pocket linings flash the same colour as the seams for lots of visual impact.
The joining bands are a kind of hybrid pick up and knit combined with three-needle bind-off. There are no hand sewn seams in this project. It's all knitting, all the time!
