Seamus Pullovers at Petite Purls


 My little ones love to collect rocks, dip their toes into the bay, roam and explore and are always in need of a cool pullover that can withstand their adventures.  Seamus is the quintessential summer pullover with two  nautically inspired stripe patterns & semaless construction making it quick and easy to knit during the warmer months.  While the little ones are busy collecting & investigating, the sleeves can be rolled up and buttoned in place so as not to interfere with their activities.  This classic unisex pullover can be passed down to younger siblings and will continue to look loved the more it is worn.

Sizes: 3 months (6 months, 12 months, 18 months, 2T, 4T, 6T, 8T, 10T)

Rating: Easy to Intermediate

Techniques & Stitches Used:  Knitting in the round, basic increase & decreases, carrying yarn up for color changes.

Yarn Requirements:  Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Worsted Cotton
                                    400 - 700 yards - see pattern for details

The sleeves roll up!

Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Worsted Cotton is SO soft.  I am not usually fond of knitting with cotton, but this was an exception :)  It has resulted in extremely soft and wearable pullovers which Levi and Scarlett love...
