Stacked stag-horn baby sweater (DK weight)
The stacked stag-horn baby sweater is a snuggly, classic, and easy drop-shoulder pull-over with an elegant cable adorning the front, appropriate for both girls and boys.
Finished measurement: approximately 18” (19.5”)
Yarn: about 320yd of any springy DK-weight will do. The large cables (you’re crossing six stitches at a time) mean that an animal fiber will be your best bet because of the elasticity.
NOTES: The most recent version of the pattern includes a different method for working increase that is much cleaner and more attractive. I have also added charts. If you downloaded this file prior to February 21, 2014, please re-download it.
ERRATA: I corrected an error in the cable instructions on February 16, 2014. Please re-download this if you got this pattern on an earlier date!
A correction for the shoulder decreases follows and will be incorporated in the next publishing:
Wearer’s right shoulder (if you’re looking at the front of the sweater, it will be the left side):
