    This little sweater is ideal for either little girls or boys, simply sew the cross-over left-to-right or right-to-left as required. If you are passing this sweater along to the next child in the family, once it has been outgrown, simply unpick and re-sew the front portion of the collar if it’s going from a boy to a girl or vice versa. The actual garment measures 22, 24 or 26 inches around at the chest. There are four pages to the pattern, with written instructions and photographs of the sweater as it progresses. Worsted yarn was used for the pictured garment, you don't need to use the yarn specified as long as you make sure that you check the gauge. The garment is knit flat, so only straight needles are required.
