The Calvin Sweater by VanessaKnits KnitKit
When my 6 year old son, Calvin, asked me to knit him a “green and white striped sweater,” I knew just the yarn to purchase. I picked up four skeins of lovely Morehouse Farm 2 ply yarn at Vogue Knitting Live this past January and began designing a boxy fit sweater that he could throw on top of a base layer when the weather inevitably turned cold. He loves his new sweater and I hope the little ones in your life do as well! – Vanessa
