A Sloth is not just for Christmas. We all love a super cute festive sweater, but it would be nice to wear it well past the celebrations. Sloth sweater to the rescue!
Not only is the Santa Hat knitted separately and can be removed, but there is also an option for having your Sleepy Sloth lay on a candy cane or a tree branch. Both charts are included in your pattern.
Knit in DK weight yarn, this is a fantastic stash busting pattern. Worked from the bottom up and seamed.
Sized to fit approx. ages 1-9 years. Please see table below for yarn and sizing information.
Check out the video.
The sweater is knitted from the bottom up with an intarsia panel for the Sloth and candy cane (or branch). Small applique pieces are knitted separately and sewn on at the end. The snowflakes are added at the end using dulpicate stitch, so you can have some fun, making your sweater just the way you want it.
