I also had difficulty with needle size and gauge. I finally went down to a size six needle. This enabled me to make the correct dimensions for the sweater, but I felt the texture of the yarn when knitted on this small a needle was much stiffer than I would like for a baby's sweater. Also, this fuzzy yarn sheds like crazy. I don't think I would use it again for a baby's sweater.

If you don't mind following a pattern that doesn't correlate to the picture, this pattern may be for you. The skill level is rated "Easy" but you will need to be able to make adjustments as you go to make this pattern work. I am a good solid intermediate knitter and I found this pattern frustrating.

I used size 7 needles and it turned into a dress for my son when I followed the pattern exact. I ended up taking the whole top color and all but about 5 rows of the middle color off then started the divides for the fronts and back. The sleeves are way too wide also I had to cut those down. and re-do them.

So my sleeves ended up with 3 colors, I did green,blue,green-but the greens were the same. And the body only had two.. Blue on bottom and green on top!

other than that this is a simple pattern, and cute.

A lot of wasted work and time!

What a lovely pattern this is and I had fun making it for our new TWIN granddaughters! I needed to use a #4 needle to get the correct gauge. I decided to give each baby a slightly different rendition, so I reversed the stripes and used spotted buttons on one and striped buttons on the other. I enjoyed working with the Nature's Choice Organic Cotton yarn. Now I have to make one in "boy" colors for our 2 1/2 year old grandson!

Thank you so much for these corrections. I thought I was going crazy, but realized I've knitted for almost 40 years and would figure it out. So, now I know you've also figured it out.
Thanks again, Carol Farndon

What a breeze to least after I figured out how to reverse a purl stitch to decrease. It turned out really well...the new Mom loved it and there were lots of 'oohs and aahs' at the baby shower!

I loved this pattern, very easy and allows for alot of imagination. I used left over yarns to make a baby sweater for our grandson-to-be. I used a size 8 needle for my yarns. It works up easily and I called it a "weekend sweater."

I could not find a needle size that gave me the same gauge for width and length.

Comfy Colors Cardi Reviewed by Mary Burkley Pike on 2009-03-25 ***
I just received the yarn that I ordered for this sweater. The gauge on the yarn for size 9 needles is completely different than the gauge give for the pattern. I am using size 5 needles and still cannot match the guage but it will be close enough for a baby's loose fitting sweater.
