Spunky, surprising, and super-NYC knitwear designer, Lindsay Degen, created the City Block Sweater for Purl Soho as an ode to glorious Big Apple moxie, as well as to the unfettered nature of babies. Simple intarsia stripes and blocks make colorful splashes across this roomy and practical sweater, giving babies full freedom of expression! This pattern may embrace the spirit of our hometown, but knitting it doesn't require any big-city know-how. The City Block Sweater works up in simple flat pieces with easy blocks of color along the way, and the whole thing is seamed together at the end. The fun colors and soft touch come from our Posy and Pocket Posy yarns, a kid-proof blend that also happen to be beautifully hand dyed and machine-washable, too!
