This sweater was a specific request from my daughter, aged 9 years and 6 months old. She chose the colour, we decided together how long it should be, but I have imposed short sleeves (you know why…).
She chose to have hearts somewhere, I chose to make them filled and empty and to put them somewhere where you could be easily substitute them with something else: I have designed 3 options to choose from.
You have 4 generous sizes that should fit children up to the age of about 12.
It is a practical sweater for everyday school days, but with a special attention to details and wearability!
L’écolière, feminine, singular, means schoolgirl in French.
This sweater is knitted top-down, in one piece.
Sleeve have a classical raglan construction.
The length is adjustable (you will use more yarn than the stated yardage).

Fingering weight yarn: approx 95 (110, 125, 150) g, 380 (440, 500, 600) m / 416 (481, 547, 656) yds
