A top-down knitting pattern for knitters who prefer to knit in the round to minimise sewing up. This circular technique means that the stripes of self-patterning Hayfield Blossom travel around the sleeves and body creating a more delicate floral effect than a traditional pieced pattern. This children’s knitting pattern includes instructions for a matching beanie hat with giant pompom to keep your little ones stylish and snug.
You Will Also Need: 1 Pair of 6½mm (UK3-USA10.5) 40-60cm Circular Knitting Needle, 1 pair of 5½mm (UK5-USA9) 40-60cm Circular Knitting Needle and Stitch Holder. NB When using needles for a smaller circumference shorter length Circulars or Double Pointed Needles are also an option.
