This sweet little sweater is fun to knit with an easily memorized stitch pattern. It is knit in the round to the armholes, then worked separately for the front and back, with lap shoulder detail. Sleeves are picked up and knit down from the shoulder either in the round or flat- it’s your choice!

The lap shoulder detail is easy on, easy off, making it easy to dress baby, plus it is such a cute design detail. The pattern will work equally well for a boy or girl, and is great for gift giving. Thrown on over an outfit, or paired with warm tights or leggings, it’s a cold weather essential.

A super easy way to get a different size would be to use fingering weight yarn for about a three month size and worsted weight for toddlers. Adjust sweater and sleeve length accordingly.

Hello there! Thank you so much for looking at my pattern. It has come to my attention that there was an error in stitch counts for the body originally in order to make the texture pattern fit properly. I have revised the pattern slightly to show the correct number of stitches for the body. The numbers should now reflect the accurate placement of the stitch pattern.

Furthermore, I have titled each section of the pattern in bold in order for it to read more clearly, and have clarified the shaping of the lap shoulders since the decreasing instructions were misleading to a couple of people. I hope that this makes knitting this pattern easier and more enjoyable to everyone. I apologize for the error and trust this revision will prove to be helpful.
