This delightful baby sweater uses one of the most popular lace patterns: Feather and Fan. Because the lace works at a tighter gauge than stockinette, you will knit the lace pattern on a larger needle. The fronts and backs are worked as one piece to the underarms, and all edges are finished with a neat garter-stitch border.
