Saddle-shouldered Sweater


Another EZ sweater finished! I've got ideas brewing for the next one. It sure is fun to knit small sweaters for small kids - they just fly off the needles (the sweaters, not the kids).

The yarn is Dale of Norway Falk. I added a pirate motif that was adapted from Hello Yarn's We Call Them Pirates pattern. To size it down for a child, I made some adjustments to the sleeve percentages and the shaping at the top. All the details, and more pictures, are over at my blog Zigzag Stitch. Thanks for looking!
