Diamond Brocade Toddler Sweater

copyright - all rights reserved 2014©

This sweater will fit a 2 year old perfectly and would look great with a shirt underneath. Overall it is easy to knit although if you are a beginner and you are not familiar with some techniques you will need to look them up. (M1, picking up stitches, DPN knitting...)
