Hand-knits are for special occasions: trips to the
pumpkin patch, holiday dinners, and of course - school picture day! Targhee wool, structural and
springy, lends oodles of textural depth to cables and ribs that are easy to memorize. Designed for active
children, this sweater features plenty of ease and buttons for easy dressing.

The front, back, and sleeves are worked flat from the bottom up, and then seamed. Stitches are picked up
and worked for the collar, then the button bands, which are seamed at the bottom.
