I grew up in a family of very creative women. My mom and my aunts all knit and crochet. I remember as a little girl sitting and watching them make cables and thinking, I want to do that someday. :) ...

Lacey Girl Baby Sweater

from Terrific Fibers
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Lacey Girl Baby Sweater
Lacey Girl Baby Sweater Back
Lacey Girl Baby Sweater Size 0 to 3 months Front
Lacey Girl Baby Sweater Size 1 Front

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cast on, knit, purl, work a yarn over, knit 2 together, place stitches on a holder for later use.

Pattern Description:

I think every little girl needs a lacey sweater. I wanted to create a design that was fairly easy and didn't need a lot of finishing when the knitting was done.

This sweater is knit from the top down. When you bind off, you are done. All you need to do will be block it and attach your button.

This is my most popular pattern and has complete written directions. If you prefer to knit lace with a chart, there is also a chart included for the lace design.

I call for circular needles for this pattern even though it is knit back and forth in rows. If you prefer 14" straight needles, you can use those.

Please note that the smallest size uses sport weight yarn and the larger two sizes us worsted weight yarn.


sport weight: 20 sts + 24 rows = 4 inches;
worsted weight: 17 sts + 24 rows = 4 inches;
both worked in stockinette stitch on larger needles for each size.

  • 0- 3 months; 6 months; 1 year
