This is a charity pattern which I put together to help raise funds for a new building and its upkeep for Aspley Guise Lower School in Bedfordshire. Being a parent myself I wanted to cater for those little growth spirts we all know and love so the project is worked from the waistband downwards so you have a cast off edge at the bottom and then you are picking up stitches from the other side of the waistband and working up towards the shoulders so you then have a cast off edge at the top of the garment and at the bottom for future adjusting.

You can easily adjust the length of the sleeves or simply detach the sleeves altogether to give a tunic variation
The children wanted this design to be environmentally friendly so Eco Tinto by Rico Design or you can use ECO + by Cascade Yarns.

We have also graded this design to cater from 24 inch chest up to 40 inch chest.

Do feel free to view the design by clicking on this link below
