Beginner's delight! Knit on #7 needles, boater is a classic and traditional sweater with an extra detail or two added for fun. The Yoke is worked in K1, P1 Raised Rib on #6 needles and actually aids in the armhole shaping, and the directions include instruction to assemble all the pieces with Single Crochet wroked on the right side - an easier task then sewing together all the pieces. This is such a basic pattern that there is room for experiment with any number of textured yarns. Sizes 2-12.
Our yarn recommendation is Ivy Brambles Superwash Worsted, making this classic Penny Straker design an easy knit and easy care garment. Requires just 2 - 3 skeins. (ages 2-6, 8-12).
