Esme Children’s Jumper/Top Knitting Kit (with sleeves)
Esme is a fabulous garment which can be dressed up or down for any occasion. The pattern gives you several choices: you can make this long sleeved and with a princess collar (see our adult version for this look), or sleeveless with a simple square neck (as in the picture).
The cute peplum adds a wonderful touch to an exceptional garment that any girl will love to wear!
