Here’s one that I think every little man AND every little lady should have :)
Shawl collars are always nice and cozy under a coat -- especially for children who, like mine, adamantly reject scarves… Designed to be relatively close-fitting, this sweater won’t add bulk under a jacket.
The twisted rib detail and a fun (and easy!) texture stitch add a bit of sophistication. Comfort and style!
This sweater is knit seamlessly from the top down. First it is worked flat, then stitches for the neck placket are cast on and the
sweater is then worked in the round. Stitches are picked up around the neckline to work the shawl collar, which is knit flat using short rows. The bottom edges of the collar are sewn onto the body. The sleeves are worked in the round.
SKILLS REQUIRED: long-tail cast on, knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, knitting in the round, picking up stitches, working short rows (explanations provided,) twisted stitches (i.e., ktbl and ptbl: link to video tutorial provided).

One of the best written knitting patterns I’ve ever used. Sweater came out beautifully!
I haven't had a chance to begin this as yet as I only just downloaded it but it looks great. Also the seller was very helpful in answering questions promptly so I know if I have any questions I can go back to them.
The owner is so so so helpful with instructions and the pattern was easy to follow for this novice knitter!
