This sweater was inspired by one in Gibson-Roberts’ and Robson’s Knitting in the Old Way. This version is much simplified and resized for baby.

Techniques Covered:

colorwork

duplicate stitch

charts!

circular yoke shaping

top-down, seamless, one piece construction

SIZES:  6-9 months & 9-12 months

Designer gives directions for two sizes using different size needles.  Doing so means that the stitch counts and fair isle patterning can stay the same across sweater sizes. Make sure you choose the size needle that will give you the proper gauge!
