Sam Gus' School Bus Sweater
  0 customer reviews

My son squeals with delight every time he seesor hears a bus. I decided he MUST have a school bus sweater. Next thing I knew, I was busting out the colored pencils and browsing When I read that Knit Picks "Canary will remind you of sunflowers and school buses" I decided it was fate Sam Gus' School Bus sweater must be knit!
Sam Gus' School Bus is knit in Knit Picks CotLin DK makes a perfect fall sweater for a special toddler. (Here in Texas, it serves as a perfect winter sweater, too!) For those tikes living is places with real winter, Sam Gus' School Bus would be toasty and perfect in Knit Picks Swish DK.
The front and back are worked separately. The sleeves are worked in the round down to the cuff from stitches picked up from the armhole edges. The pattern requires basic and intermediate knitting techniques: knit, purl, cast on, bind off, decreases (k2tog, p2tog, ssk, p2togtbl), yarn over, intarsia, reading charts, picking up stitches, 3-needle bind-off, knitting in the round (optional), simple embroidery (chain stitch and duplicate stitch), mattress stitch seaming.
