    This child's aran sweater was inspired by my little granddaughter asking me to make her a special purple sweater (it's our favourite colour!). It is suitable for boys or girls, and you can make the neckline plain if you prefer, or follow the pattern. The actual garment measures 22, 24 or 26 inches around at the chest. There are five 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.
