The sweater is seamless and is worked from the neck down. The yoke is garter stitch and the sleeves are worked in the round in a pattern stitch that is much easier than it looks. The yoke can be left plain or decorated by sewing on purchased little ribbon flowers or embroidering them yourself.
Instead of doing the sleeve in the pattern stitch, the entire sleeve can be done in garter stitch. The pattern also has instructions to do garter stitch short sleeves instead.
The hat is worked in the round (no seams) from bottom to top and is finished off by knitting a cute "flower" on top, using the instructions in the pattern.

My great-aunt taught me to knit when I was a child of about 8 yrs old so I've been knitting "forever". For the past 2 years I've been designing baby sweaters and selling the patterns. After I retired a few years ago, I started knitting for charity. I knit mostly baby sweaters and send them to Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in SD. Selling the patterns I design helps to cover the cost of yarn and shipping. When I design a baby sweater in multiple sizes, I knit all the sizes myself, then send them all to Pine Ridge. I love knitting and I love babies. :)View all patterns by designer (43) »
