The Simply Stripy Sweater - For Baby is a top down raglan with a striped yoke & a button closure. It’s knit all in one piece with no seaming & limited finishing.
But it isn’t as simple as that. Beyond the Basic Sweater pattern, this booklet is filled with options to adjust and customize your sweater… including 3 additional striping options, 3 additional sleeve options, 2 additional closure options, and directions for dress & onesie versions!

This sweater is designed to be a bit oversized to allow the sweater to be worn a little longer. I recommend knitting a size that will be a little big in fall & wear it more like an outer layer. Then it can be worn as an inner layer as the child continues to grow.
