This pattern is ideal for primary school uniforms, but also an Easy-Knit children's pattern like this is an essential staple in any knitters stash.
Originally knitted in the King Cole Pricewise DK, an acrylic perfect for uniforms because of its huge range of colours, giving you the best chance of colour matching the exact shade the school mandates. Also, if you're not knitting it as part of a uniform, Pricewise gives you a gazillion other colours to choose from. Another great option which self-stripes is the King Cole Drifter DK if you want to make it a bit jazzier.
Knitted on 3.75mm and 4mm Straight Needles.
