Avery Big Kid

Day two of new pattern releases. For the first eight days of November we’ll be releasing a new pattern each day. Check back often to see more.

Avery is such a popular pattern from my earlier collection and often I’m asked for my patterns in larger sizes. Avery Big Kid fits the bill.

A favourite sweater with bold blocks of colour on the front, I’ve sized Avery up for an older crowd. Inset sleeves and fully fashioned shaping create a more sophisticated look and fit for school-aged children. The key design elements of corrugated ribbing and patterned sleeves made this one a best seller for the toddler set, and it looks just as good on the big kids. They’ll love the comfort, you’ll love the look.

Worked in fingering weight yarn so it won’t be too heavy for your child who runs hot, there are so many wonderful fingering and sock yarns available these days. Originally designed for self-patterning or self-striping yarn, this sweater would look great with beautiful hand-dyed variegated and monochromatic combinations as well. How about one of those great gradient yarns that are so popular? I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
