Feather And Fan Baby Sweater

Lion Brand« LB Collection« Cotton Bamboo

GAUGE:

23 sts + 28 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St 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.

Feather And Fan Baby Sweater Reviewed by Wendy Davis on 2012-08-05 *****
I absolutely *love* this pattern! Knit in its original measurements, it is quick and easy to make for babies and toddlers. It also is incredibly simple to make larger sizes with thicker yarn and larger needles. I have adjusted the pattern to make the sweater for my 5-,7-, and 14-year-old daughters, and am working on one for myself! I would like to add that working the sleeves in-the-round with DPNs cuts out any sewing. THANK YOU!!
