Check out that pocket! Every garment should have at least one pocket, do you agree?

The Ghost House is knitted separately and then sewn to the front of the sweater, leaving the side edge open to form a nice big pocket, big enough for the Ghost Mittens to hide inside. The Pocket has a number of windows and a door which are also knitted separately then sewn on (no intarsia).

The Ghost House sweater is a bottom up, set in sleeve sweater. The ombre effect is achieved by working a series of stripes and the moon is embroidered on using the chart provided.

The Mittens are worked flat, with a ruffles skirt added and some felt piece attached (template included).

The Sweater is available to fit approx ages 1- 9 years and the Mittens are sized to fit ages 1-2 yrs (2-5 yrs: 6-9 yrs). For more information, see table below.

Both the Sweater and the Mittens are knitted in DK weight yarn.
