THE LITTLE DUDE
Dude24

The Little Dude is a mini version of the iconic Big Lebowski sweater, designed to be fun to knit with sweet knitterly details. It's worked entirely in the round so that the stranded color work never has to be worked on the wrong side, and finishing doesn't require any seaming. The sizing goes all the way from newborn to age 12, so all your little Dudes and Dudettes are covered!

To top it off, go get the grown-up version, The Knitter's Dude so you can have a whole family of Dudes! Get the ebook, The Royal We, or check out The Knitter's Dude.
