Round Yoke Baby Sweater

Lion Brand« Baby Wool

GAUGE:

17 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd). 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

ssk (slip, slip, knit) Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them tog - 1 st decreased.

NOTES:

Sleeves are knit separately in the round. Body is worked in the round, beginning at lower edge. Sleeves and Body are joined to form the yoke (upper portion of the sweater), and the decreases in the yoke are designed to create a subtle pattern.

With double-pointed needles, cast on 40 (40, 42, 42, 44) sts. Divide sts evenly onto 4 needles.

Rep for 2nd Sleeve.

BODY
With circular needle, cast on 86 (90, 98, 102, 110) sts. Place marker for beg of rnd. Join by working the first st on left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.
Beg at lower edge of Body, work in Garter st worked in the rnd for 6 rnds.
Change to St st worked in the rnd and work until piece measures about 5 (6, 6 1/2, 7, 8) in. (12.5 (15, 16, 17, 19.5) cm) from beg.

Round Yoke Baby Sweater Reviewed by Connie on 2013-11-26 *****
Easy for a fairly experienced knitter!! I was thrilled with the out come. My niece wants one in each color!!!

I only wish I was experienced enough to make a larger size that is documented here.

I will use a larger needle size, but the results will not be as predictable!

Thanks for the pattern!!!
