Theos striped body is a basic garment that is great to have in the wardrobe of the little ones!
The body is knitted from top to bottom in stockinette st with stripes. After the neckline, short rows are made in the back and raglan increases. After the yoke you knit the torso. Then the work is divided into front and back pieces to make leg openings that are knitted back and forth separately. Pick up stitches for leg edges and knit at the end. Italian cast on and cast off have been used to make it stretchy, and it gives a nice result.
