Lillie’s Little Sweater, is a lovely sweater. This pattern is written in Doll-size to 36 months. Knit from worsted weight yarn, it begins with a catlike hood and proceeds downward. The yoke features raglan shaping. Techniques include a simple buttonhole, short rows, picking up stitches, and use of double-point needles. The sweater has minimal finishing and would be an especially good pattern for an advanced beginner knitter or as a class for a knitting workshop.
