Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, yarn over, pick up stitches, bind-off

Pattern Description:

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.
