The Sweater child's knitting pattern by Holli Yeoh | River City Yarns Hat Trick

The Sweater

Go warm or go home!

You’ll score big with this great sweater made by Canadian designer Holli Yeoh using River City Yarns very special Hat Trick hockey yarn. Your favourite young person (from birth to 12 years) will love wearing their team colours at the game, or during a pickup game on the street. It’s oversized, and the loose fabric makes it comfortable to wear in the arena as an outer layer that’s sure to keep them warm.

It’s a quick knit, too. With large needles and fingering weight yarn, it will be off your needles and ready to wear in no time. We’ve paired up the sporty Hat Trick yarn with a solid to create a team jersey effect. And, the Garter stitch bands and a unique hybrid three-needle bind-off combined with pick up and knit means there’s no sewing.

Knit this now for the hockey season, or let them find it under the Christmas tree—it’s surely one for the win column.
