This pattern, like all the patterns from Big & Little Sweaters, comes in a range of sizes from 24” to 48” (actual measurements) in six different silhouettes - three are sleeveless: a v-neck “slipover” (vest) or waistcoat (button front vest with pockets) or a crew neck “short top” with pockets.The other three have long sleeves with modified drop shoulders. One is a pull over crew neck sweater, another is a jacket (a v-neck with a shawl collar and pockets) and the third is a cardigan (crew neck, with pockets). All silhouettes use 6 colors, except for the short top, which uses only 5. For most sizes and silhouettes, only one 125-yd ball of DK weight yarn is needed for each contrast color, so for the smallest sizes, partial balls of contrast colors would absolutely work.
