Skipper sweater – PixenDK
This pattern is in english.
About the design:
SKIPPER is knit in the round from the bottom up until the v-neck begins. Thereafter it is knit flat back and forth.
The model is meant to have a slightly close fit, but the pattern is very elastic and can accommodate a wider range of sizes (see measurement for chest).
Children are very different with regard to size even if they are the same age, so always pick a size after the child’s size rather than age.
