Description: Small booklet of 3 sweaters all in double knitting weight: V-neck with small vertical cabled stripes; round-neck with a staggered rib on the body and ribbed raglan sleeves; and shawl collar with purl stitched patterning. I personally think this is a really nice set for "6-14 years" (but maybe slightly younger kids these days) - all different - and designed for a single colour creating interest through textured stitches.
