Vertical Stripes Baby Sweater

Lion Brand® LB Collection® Superwash Merino

GAUGE:

22 sts + 44 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row). 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.

Vertical Stripes Baby Sweater Reviewed by Sharyne Doughty on 2009-10-03 *****
I love this pattern.
So quick & easy & fun to make.
Easy to re-size for a larger child (as I did).
I added a little collar as requested by my 5 year old!
