With its easy to follow shaping and simple colourwork, Embrace is the perfect first cast-on for your little one. Claire designed this sweater to be both beginner and experienced knitter friendly. It is swift and enjoyable to knit with just the right amount of techniques and details to keep you challenged and engaged.
Embrace is knit seamlessly and top down, beginning with a ribbed collar and moving into a little short-row shaping and an increased yoke. Once the yoke has been shaped, a few rows of simple colourwork transition us to the main colour, where you can relax with some soothing stockinette. The body is finished with a little more colourwork and a twisted rib hem. The sleeves are gently shaped and end with a folded cuff in twisted rib, perfect for not only keeping the kids warm, but for a little more space for those growing limbs.
