This is an adaptation of Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Baby Sweater on Two Needles (February) from her Knitter’s Almanac. I modified the pattern for a more unisex look when I knit a sweater for a baby boy. I liked the pattern but didn’t think that the lace on a boy would be quite right. I used a slip stitch pattern on the body and sleeves to create ridges for something a little more interesting than straight stockinet stitch. I did this years ago and have knitted up dozens of these sweaters but recently the Monday Night Knitting Divas asked me to write it down, so here it is.
