Dot Sweater - Kids - English

€5
With a fun and easy-to-knit Fair Isle dot-pattern and using 1 strand of Merino and 1 strand of Soft Silk
Mohair held together throughout, Dot Sweater is the perfect project for playing with different color
combinations and for using up some of your smaller amounts of leftover yarn.
Dot sweater is worked seamlessly top down in the round, beginning with the ribbed neckband. You then
start following the charts for the Fair Isle pattern as well as working raglan increases to the underarms.
Sleeve stitches are then placed on hold to be worked after the body has been completed. Ribbed edges
finish the body and the sleeves. The neckband is folded and stitched down. The length of the body and
sleeves can easily be adjusted. The Fair Isle pattern is charted only.
