This sweater was inspired by grandson love of trains.
The sweater is knitted in the round with steek for the sweater front. The steek is worked over 8 sts. When changing colors, add new yarn in the middle of the steek and break off yarn at the same middle point, being sure to leave a 4” tail. There is no need to weave in the newly joined yarn as steeks are sewn on a machine before cutting. Alternate the color in the steek to create a stripped pattern. Edge Stitches are worked in the background color on either side of the steek sts.
