This sweater pattern is being released in honor of all the little miracles in our lives, especially the ones who need a little extra help coming into the world. Please click on my knitting blog here for more information about this. Many thanks to the knitters who purchased the pattern in the first two months of release. We were able to send a very nice donation to the Children’s Hospital of Illinois!

This sweater is an heirloom piece. My testers agreed - it takes some time, but the result is absolutely worth it. It will be the kind of sweater that gets passed through many children and saved for the next generation to enjoy.

The Miracle Sweater features raglan shaping, a ribbed collar that can be worn folded down or buttoned up, and enough ease to wear another sweater beneath so this can double as a fall or spring jacket. Kids will love the lightweight warmth of this tightly woven stitch, and you’ll love gifting a garment as unique as your own little miracle!

“Intermediate” Skills Used:
Make 1 increases using backward loop
Twisted stitches (explained in detail and video links given)
Picking up stitches
i-cord button band trim (explained in detail with video links given)

I am always available to answer questions, so please feel free to message me any time!
