The body and sleeves of Colette are knit in the round and then joined for the raglan yoke. The yoke is worked back and forth for the last few inches to accommodate the larger heads of babies and toddlers. When joining the body and sleeves you may find it helpful to place a contrasting color marker to differentiate the beg of round from the raglan decrease markers. Colette is available in the KELBOURNE WOOLENS BABY COLLECTION and also as an individual pattern.
