FLAX LIGHT by Tin Can Knits

Flax Light is a fingering weight version of the original Flax from The Simple Collection by Tin Can Knits. As with the original, this sweater is knit seamlessly from the collar to cuffs and makes a perfect first sweater project. The designers have generously provided knitting instructions for sizes 0-6 mo through 4XL and note that this versatile pullover is “adorable on babies, great for guys and cute on the ladies too!” We agree 🙂

Here are links to worsted weight versions of this sweater (the original Flax) we’ve knit in the past – one for my son in size XS (to fit a 10-year old) and our store sample in size 4-6 years.
