This is a mac & me classic–exquisite yarn, soft, over-sized. Sized from 2-6 years, this will be a well-loved hand-me-down. The pattern calls for sport weight doubled, but can easily be adjusted to worsted weight by being mindful of the gauge and drape of the yarn. No one wants a stiff sweater. The sizing is roomy so roll up the sleeves and layer!
