My dear mama is in search of a knitting pattern for one of her grandsons. She's keen to knit him a jumper with a kind of crossover neckline. It's the kind of neckline in this Flickr photo, only probably going a tad further down the chest. From memory, to knit it you leave the front with a long squared off low neckline and then knit the collar as a rectangle to sew in, crossing over the ends of the rectangle at the front, so they're flat there and curve over to form a collar at the neck.
I don't knit. I know how, but an old injury means it becomes too painful after too short a period of time to bother. If any of you who read this blog, some of whom are knit-knowledgeable, could point me in the direction of a pattern (she wants to knit a size suited to about an 8 year old) I'd be most grateful, and so would my dear mama. Maybe a current pattern, maybe a vintage one (I'm sure they were cranking this style out in the fifties).
