Knitting Pattern: Trains Three Years


This is a PDF instant file.
This is a pattern for a sweater for a three year old boy or girl train lover. On the front a black steam engine rolls down the tracks. On the back are the engine's coal car and red caboose. Each sleeve has three more colorful engines, in various colors, against a blue sky. The trim pattern on the sleeves and body is black silhouetted houses against a shaded blue sky. There is also a more difficult variation for a trim pattern of white houses and green trees. The neck, wrists, and hem sew-down trim is alternating stripes of black and variegated blue. This pattern uses many different colors of DK yarn.
Obviously other colors can be used.
