Knitting Pattern: Finnish Shield Two Years

Knitting Pattern: Finnish Shield Two Years


This is a pattern for a hand knit sweater for a two year old child.

The main pattern is white snowflakes on a dark blue background. Inset at the front and back is a striking pattern of gold lions on a red background. There are also mini flags in the Finnish colors. At the hem and the wrists is a traditional pattern of people in white on a varying blue background. At the neck, wrist, and hem is a pattern of alternating stripes in variegated blue and periwinkle. The back and front are similar with small adjustments. The neck has one pewter clasp. On the sleeves are more snowflakes with another variation of the Finnish flag. You don't have to be Finnish to wear this sweater!

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!
