This pattern is a cardigan worked from the top-down with a round yoke. The yoke is worked in garter stitch and the body is worked in a pattern stitch. There are directions for working the sleeves in garter stitch or pattern stitch, whichever you prefer.
The yardage needed for this pattern for the 4 sizes is: 260 (315, 372, 422) yards of sport weight yarn.
The main portion of the sweater is knit flat, while the sleeves are knit in the round. In addition to straight needles, you will need whatever type needles you prefer for knitting in the round: dpn's, 2 circulars, etc.
I originally published a pattern in a very similar design and called it Sweet Baby Sweater & Hat. That pattern (still available on Craftsy) was only written to fit 0-3 mos and is slightly different from this one in that it has borders and the increases used are different. A number of people said they wished the pattern were available in larger sizes so I have re-worked it and this is the result.
22 sts / 38 rows = 4" in garter stitch

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) »
