Mannish features multiple cables accompanied by texture. It is a drop shoulder sweater with approximately 2”/5cm of ease. If you believe your child will grow, choose the next size up. All pieces are worked separately, blocked, and seamed together with the exception of the neckband. Along the neckline and sleeve decreases, work in the established pattern as best as you can. If you would like longer sleeves, continue in length after decreases to your desired length.

The wicker stitch pater is a set of 1x1 cables worked so that it creates a basket like appearance. It is used for the sides and sleeves.

This sample is the 2T size on a model between size 2T and 3T clothing.
