It’s almost Christmas, and I have a present for you!
It’s the pattern for my Radish Pullover! It turned out so well, that I just had to write it up. And I hope you like it, too.
It’s a fairly simple bottom up, seamless pullover with a V-neck and 2×2 ribbing around the cuffs, hem and collar. There is a fully-charted stranded Radish motif that runs across the sleeves and belly, and the pattern is sized from 0-6 months up to 8-10 years.
This sweater is a great way to use up those partial skeins of sock yarn that I’m sure you have laying around your stash. The brown doesn’t use more than a half skein, and the radish colors (green, red and white) are only used for a handful of rows each.
And the best part? Since the inspiration for this sweater came from my kid’s favorite book, Sheep in a Jeep, I’m donating all proceeds from this pattern to the Children’s Literacy Initiative, a fantastic organization that supports teachers and their students to help every kid learn how to read. I’m trying a “Pay what you can” model this time, so you can get the pattern for free, or donate up to $15 (or whatever feels right to you).
So, head on over to Ravelry and pick up a copy of the Radish Pullover so you can make a sweater for your favorite little reader!
