The Wonderful Wallaby is an adventure in seamless knitting. The efficient use of double point and circular needles eliminates seams and joining of component parts. Great for children or adults, adult sizes given are actual chest size, however the pattern was built with ease for comfortable wearing. For example, the chest measurement for an adult large is 40”, which means the sweater will fit someone with a 40” chest. However, the finished sweater has about a 44” chest circumference, enough to accommodate turtle neck or other shirt underneath.
