I've seen this a few places now and seriously? Easiest kids sweater to make EVER!
I went to the op-shop and got two sweaters of similar weight. The black one was a bit heavier than the red but it worked out okay. If I did this again I would have made sure they had similar hems, the red one had hems but the black one had ribbing, would have skipped more corners if they were more alike!
I cut half a front, half a back and one sleeve out of the red and then did the reverse for the black. Then I stitched the fronts together, the backs together and then sewed the sweater up like a regular tee-shirt.
Monster has gotten more solid since I sewed for him last. His skinny little chest is getting more stocky and although this sweater fits him, I don't think he'd be comfortable in it for long.
And here's the Inspiration!
