These simple sweaters are a great gender neutral pattern that you could use right the way through childhood. A simple a quick knit with a raglan sleeve and a chunky yarn you will be done in no time.
Knitted in King Cole Big Value Chunky, yarn which is 100% acrylic and machine washable (an essential requirement for the energetic small ones) and on 5mm and 6mm needles . You could also try our King Cole Chunky Tweed which has a great range of colours with a vibrant fleck in it (it happens to be one of our most popular chunky yarns).
You will also need stitch holders for this project.
