Lux sweater (kids)
Knit from top down working stockinette stitches inside out. The inside of the sweater consists mainly of purled stitches. Work the sweater longer in the back by knitting rows and turning using the «german shortrow»-technique. When the sweater is all done, turn it so the side with the purled stitches comes on the outside.
Remember to fasten any loose ends on the side with knitted stitches!
