This little sweater, in 4 sizes to fit baby from Newborn to 18 months, is knit in the round to the armhole shaping where the front and back are divided and worked separately. The sleeves are also knit separately with a shaped cap then set-in for a fitted, more dressy look. The Eastport Alpaca, either factory or Hand Spun, makes it extra luxurious and oh, so soft.

This knitting pattern is well illustrated and includes a bonus tutorial teaching 3 needle bind off with lots of pictures.

Skills Required:
Work in the round on a circular needle, Knit, Purl and Decreases for shaping.

I wanted a simple but classy design for a little boy. The shaped armhole gives it a dressier, more fitted look. Of course, this would also look beautiful on a baby girl if knit in a complimentary colour. A trio of buttons on the shoulder adds style and makes for easier dressing.
