Naturally Nice Baby Sweater

Lion Brand® Nature's Choice Organic® Cotton

GAUGE:

16 sts + 26 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in Stockinette st (k on RS, p on WS)

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Reviewed by Kim on 2014-09-28 *****
I am not a beginner knitter, but I found certain parts of this pattern to be tricky, mostly the neck, but with a bit of patience I got it. I love, love, love how soft and warm this sweater is. It looks lovely and I've gotten compliments on it while I was knitting it. I definitely recommend this, it's cute and doesn't take too long to complete.
