Pattern Description:

This darling sweater is an interesting but quick knit. Most of the detail is found in a simple textured pattern on the yoke, while the arms and body are all simple stockinette. The style is feminine and functional, pairing well with any outfit, but also something you can quickly throw on your little one when going for a walk in spring or fall. This is a fabulous baby shower gift or the perfect project for mom as she waits for her new little one. It was designed for, modeled by, and named after my daughter, whose daddy calls her "sweetling".
