Slope is an adorable sweater for little girls age 2-12 with a touch of lacework around the hems and up the back. Arroyo by Malabrigo is a sport weight superwash merino wool that is perfect for children's projects due to its softness and easy care label. Because of the kettle-dying process, the yarn has a wonderful varigated look when knitted.
Slope is knit in four pieces—the front and back are knit flat and seamed together at the sides and shoulders, giving the loose-fitting garment the necessary structure. Three-quarter length sleeves, broader at the shoulders and narrowing towards the cuff, are knit in the round and set in.
Slope is on of 21 patterns found in Niños: A Collection of Kids' Knitwear Designs or more commonly known as Malabrigo Book 9. We believe that all pattern books should come with yarn for your project!
Kit includes Niños Book (pattern inside) and selected yarn. For yarn winding services, click here.
