Sandpiper Crochet Sweater
This is a pdf for crochet pattern written using UK crochet terms,
When we were children, after a busy day at the beach our Mothers would bundle us up in hand knits and take us off to eat fish and chips at the Sandpiper Café. This roomy sweater would be ideal as an extra layer for the beach or the playground. The sleeves are designed to be worn turned back at first to provide extra “growing room”. They can be turned down as the child grows. The buttons add a touch of style to a wardrobe basic. For the larger sizes, the button tab can be omitted and the left shoulder worked to match the right. Sweater is designed with 5 – 10cm positive ease.
