Little Sock Arms

a self-striping hooray


$6.00

 

This sweater is meant for those special skeins of self-striping or gradient yarns that you don’t want to hide in your shoes. The Sock Arms Pullover is designed for sock yarn lovers who are looking for a non-sock project. The specially modified, set-in sleeves are SEAMLESS and simple to knit (like turning the heel of a sock, in fact). The modified sleeve cap allows for uninterrupted stripes on your sleeves. Finally…FUN SLEEVES! This sweater is knit from the bottom up, in the round. It includes instructions for adjusting the circumference of your sleeves. The 3 smallest sizes, include a back placket to make the sweater more comfortable to take on and off over baby's sweet noggin'. Did you know there is an Adult version of this pattern?
