Wool Striped & Cross-stitch Sweater

Wool Striped & Cross-stitch Sweater

I love this sweater! Simple raglan design knitted in a wool Phildar yarn using cream, rust, teal and green. Simple cross-stitch used for the embriodery. I've always felt this pattern wasn't gender specific, at least for younger kids. Very easy patterm the appeal really relies upon a successful color selection.

Sadly, I forget the pattern source, but I can definitively state it is not Phildar. I believe it was in something like McCalls Needlework — or something of that sort. This, too, went to the cedar chest when my son Ryan outgrew it. Below: my son Ryan in his Grade 1 school photo wearing sweater; and beneath that a detail shot.
