JONAH - a nice and practical 3-coloured polo jersey in DK-weight cotton - made for my grandson. Long drop-shoulder sleeves where there is a little gusset under the sleeves. The jersey is coloured in blocks giving one the possibility to use left over yarn or to make nice colour-ways. The sleeves worked from armhole and downwards - either to pick up stitches or to work the sleeves separately and then stitch it in.
The jersey can be worked either in rounds on circular needles or flat back and front separately. Both ways are thoroughly explained in the pattern.
This design is also good in girlish colours.
Required skill level from 1 (basic) to 5 (advanced): 3↑.
The measurements given throughout the pattern are all in cm as well as in inches.
Sizes: 4 yrs - 6 yrs - 8 yrs - 10 yrs - 12 yrs.
