The Cloud Sweater Junior is worked from the top down. First the back yoke is worked flat back and forth while short rows hare worked to shape the shoulders. Then, each shoulder is worked separately, back and forth and with short rows. The shoulders are then joined to form the front yoke. The front and back yoke are joined at the underarms to form the body, which is worked in the round on a circular needle. The sleeves are worked from stitches that are picked up and knitted along the armhole openings. The sleeves are worked in the round. At the end, the stockinette stitch funnel neckline is worked from stitches that are picked up and knitted along the neck opening. 

Knit a swatch before beginning the project to check if the recommended needle size gives you the correct gauge.

Size guide

The Cloud Sweater Junior is designed to have approx. 20-25 cm [7¾-9¾ inches] of positive ease. The sizes 1-2 (2-3) 3-4 (4-5) 5-6 (6-7) 7-8 (8-9) 9-10 (10-12) 12-14 years are designed to fit a chest circumference of 53 (54) 56 (57) 59 (62) 64 (68) 72 (78) 82 cm [20¾ (21¼) 22 (22½) 23¼ (24½) 25¼ (26¾) 28¼ (30¾) 32¼ inches]. The measurements for the finished sweater can be found on the front page of the pattern (please note that these measurements are only achieved if the correct gauge is maintained). If the intended wearer measures 62 cm [24½ inches] around the chest, you should knit a size 6-7 years. A size 6-7 years sweater has a chest circumference of 87 cm [34¼ inches] which in the given example would give the intended wearer 25 cm [9¾ inches] of positive ease. If the measured chest circumference deviates from the age guide, you can adjust the length to fit the person you’re knitting for. The same applies if the child is shorter or taller than average.
