Welcome, Baby

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • knit in the round
  • pick up stitches

Pattern Description:

Knitted from the top down entirely in one piece, with no seams.

I designed this sweater for a friend's very welcome baby boy. I had one skein of the perfect yarn, so I chose some stash yarn in a contrasting color and designed from the top down so I could use every bit of yarn.

Choose some special fingering or sport weight yarn and knit one of these for your favorite new baby. Even on small(ish) needles, this pullover knits up fast for such a little person.
