Knitting Pattern: Lion Shield Five Years

Knitting Pattern: Lion Shield Five Years


This is a PDF instant file. This is a pattern for a traditional sweater for a five year old boy or girl. The front and the back are almost identical: a golden lion in a shield on a background of columns of red and dark blue. At the wrists and hem is a trim pattern of golden lions on red. The neck, wrists, and hem is trimmed in alternating stripes of variegated red and dark blue. A traditional style sweater for a bold child.
Obviously other color combinations are possible.
Have fun!
