This simple, quick-knit sweater is knit all in one piece, from the neck down, except for the collar, which is added on later. It will make a wonderful and cozy garment for your own Girlfriend.
For Children: 2 (4, 6, 8, 10)
To fit chest sizes: 21" (23", 25.5", 27", 28")
Materials: Blue Sky Alpacas, Inc. Blue Sky Cotton, 3 (3, 4, 5, 6) hanks. The Blue Sky Alpacas, Inc. Organic Cotton would be a good substitute. Karabella's Aurora 8 would also work, if you're looking for more warmth.

This pattern is amazingly customizable. You can choose your favorite type of closure and add some funky embroidery of your own. I was thinking, I'll add some pom poms around the collar edge for Girlfriend's next Swing Coat Sweater...very cool. Check out the Winner's Photo Album for another shot.
