This is a traditional style drop shoulder sweater, worked from the bottom up.  It is a very straight forward knit and would suit a keen beginner.  The sparkly tree is worked using the Intarsia method and King Cole Galaxy DK yarn.  If you prefer to knit this in a plain yarn, you can easily substitute another DK yarn.  Why not knit one for a little Prince?

You can find the pattern inside the Hand Knit Christmas supplement which is free with issue 125 of Simply Knitting Magazine.  You can download your copy here.
