Envelope neck openings are a very practical as well as comfortable option for babies and children's sweaters.
The design is very popular and perfect for easy dressing, as it is so effortless to slip the sweater over little one's big heads.
Some people even say that the envelope neck allows you to undress by pulling the top down instead of going over the head, if you had a mishap with spillages.
It is a flat pattern with minimal shaping involved. Work the stripes, or leave it plain, perfect and flattering for both boys and girls, also when they are learning to dress themselves.
