Pattern Description:

Dressing a baby or small child can be a challenge. The Yin Yang Modular Sweater is the perfect solution.

This seamless sweater is knit in 2 halves, The Yin and The Yang, there is no struggling involved; slip on 1 half and tie, slip on the other half, tie, done! The two halves are identical, so there is no "backwards", a bonus for those little ones who love to dress themselves.

Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Ultrasoft yarn works to the same gauge as Lion Brand Cotton Ease so can be used as an alternate yarn. Green and White/Ombre samples were made using Handicrafter Cotton Ultrasoft yarn.

This seamless sweater, knit side-to-side, sports a 6-stitch plait cable design at the hem and front edge which provides a lovely scalloped finish. The cable design is repeated on the top of the sleeves. Side ties are I-cords; a picture tutorial is included in the pattern. A web link is provided for the 3 Needle Bind Off.
