Children Sweater Knitting Patterns
|Child's Basic |
This pattern can knitted in either Stocking Stitch or Garter Stitch and also has minimal shaping.
This pattern is rated as an easy knit as it has very little shaping and is knitted in stocking stitch. The jumper consists of four pieces, the back and the front are the same as are both of the sleeves.
|Child's Basic |
Striped Sweater Pattern
How about the same basic design but striped?
As with the plain jumper, this pattern is still rated as an easy knit as it is still knitted in stocking stitch and has very little shaping. Being basically the same pattern (with one little variation) this jumper also consists of four pieces, the back and the front are the same as are both of the sleeves.
The style of neck on both of these simple children's jumper is particularly good for small children as the opening at the neck is quite wide making it easy to get the jumper on and off over their heads.
|Child's Raglan |
Although slightly more difficult than the dropped shoulder jumper pattern, this pattern is rated as an easy knit as it has only a little shaping and is knitted in stocking stitch.
The style of the jumper is a raglan, which basically means that the top of the front, back and sleeves are shaped in a diagonal from the beginning of the armhole to the neck. This style of jumper tends to offer a better fit than either the dropped shoulder or inset sleeve styles, and raglan shaping is easier to do that it appears.

Vee Neck Vest Pattern
This pattern was requested by one of the visitors to the site. She was looking for a basic Vee Neck Vest pattern in 4 ply for sizes 2 - 6 years of age.
Didn't have one, so I created one!
This vest is knitted straight to the armholes with only simple shaping at the arms and the neck. I have incorporated a fair isle pattern on the front of mine, but the stitch pattern is not included.
