Charlotta

Charlotta 077Charlotta 060Charlotta 146

Charlotta is the kids version of Charlotte, a casual easy waring top. Knit in a drapey cotton it feels luxurious and cool on your skin.

The hem, sleeves and neckline are all finished with a built in garter edge. The garter stitch stripes create an interesting texture as well as the opportunity to experiment with the latest colours.

The body is knit in the round from the bottom up, the chest and sleeves are knit flat. The shoulders are joined using a three-needle bind off and the sleeves have minimal seaming.. Visit JadeFletcherKnits@wordpress.com for tutorials and extra tips and tricks related specifically to this pattern.

There is a 6-8 cm (2 ½ – 3”) positive ease. Choose sizes by your child’s actual chest, or refer to the garment finished measurements. Sizes 5 and up have waist shaping.
