I'm stuck. I'm stuck on knitting sweaters. I prefer to knit sweaters from the top down with very little seaming involved. I can usually find tons of patterns for top down sweater patterns for infants and toddlers, but it's been a challenge for me to find Top Down patterns for children 4 years and older.
Well, I find such a pattern! It's free, too! Size: 6-12 mos (12-18 mos, 2 yrs, 4 yrs, 6 yrs, 8 yrs, 10 yrs)
Chest: 20 (22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32)" [51 (56, 61, 66, 71, 76, 81)cm]

I also made the same sweater in size 2 yrs. for my 11-mon. grandson.
My granddaughter has out grown the lavender sweater that I made for her last yr. So, she's picked out this yarn for her new sweater. This will be fun to knit!

I needed to take a break from the Hopscotch Cardi, so I CO this last night:
|Berroco Comfort DK "Sprinkles"|
Marianna's Famous Top-Down ~ with Sleeves
I'm using Berroco Comfort DK "Sprinkles" on Size 6 needles.
One of these days, I'll get around to knitting a sleeveless summer sweater for myself with this yarn.
