Zip reminds me of a bull fight… you hold it out, your wild-one runs into it, you zip them down the back as they dash by and away they go! No struggle pulling it over the head or keeping it on because once they are zipped in, they can’t get it off.

The sweater is knitted sideways from left cuff to right cuff, casting on and binding off for the front and back. The hood is knitted separately and sewn on.

Skills Needed

General knitting skills, moss st, short row shaping, zipper installation.
