About the design:

Babette is a loose, cozy and wonderfully soft sweater with a good length and extra width around the tummy, a perfect sweater relaxing in. Babette is knit with puff sleeves and eyelet rows at the raglan, but it is possible to knit a more boyish version by ignoring the extra increases on the sleeve after the neck band and by knitting the raglan increases through the back loop.
Children are very different with regard to size even if they are the same age, so always pick a size after the child’s size rather than age.
