This is a pattern for a handknit sweater for a five year old girl. This is a variation of the Three Year sweater. Scotty dogs and bones in periwinkle line up on the rainbow front and rainbow back. Cats and cat faces are on the mirrored sleeves. The cats are adapted from The Tap-Dancing Lizard. The neck and peplum picot trim is alternating stripes of dark blue and rainbow. The wrists ribbing trim is alternating stripes of dark blue and rainbow.

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!
