Knitting Pattern" Alphabet Four Years

Knitting Pattern" Alphabet Four Years


This is a colorful, busy pattern for a hand knit sweater for a four year old child.

This is one of my favorite sweaters, for the sheer difficulty of it. There are so many colors and elements to navigate!

I tried to actually represent each letter. The front has apple, bear, cloud, drink, egg, fly, grill, and hot. The back has ice cream, jar, kite, lollipop, mountain, numbers, and orange. The left sleeve has peony, Q, R, sun, train, unicorn, and vase. The right sleeve has (violets), window, xylophone, yarn and zeppelin. The actual letters form the hem and wrists trim. There is also a trim of red shapes on blue. The neck, wrists, and hem trim is alternating dark blue and variegated red stripes.

Pattern has written directions, materials lists, and full color charts to enlarge. The pattern assumes a good knowledge of knitting, or at least an adventurous spirit and a knitting guidelines book. Obviously other color combinations are possible.

Have fun!
