Fingerpainting is one of the first forays into artistic expression for many children. The playful mix of colors and stripes in this pullover echoes those early attempts.

The body of the Fingerpaint Pullover is knit in the round from the lower edge to the armholes, then divided and worked in rows to the neck. The sleeves are worked separately and sewn to the body. There is no need to break the yarn while working the stripes on the body and sleeves; just carry the yarn not in use loosely along the edge, or up the wrong side of the body.
