baby sweater for the monster! knit in newborn size, as the next size is 6 months - this should fit him all winter long.


  • worked according to pattern until neck.

  • did not cast off/on extra stitches when making neck hole at 9cm. continued on with neck hole as-is for full 12 cm.

  • worked 21 rows on each side of neck before re-joining for second sleeve.

  • finished sleeves as pattern called for.

  • picked up 21 stitches along front and back, with two stitches at each armpit. then kfb/pfb of each stitch on front / back.

  • didn’t make a button band, simply knit sweater around in 2x2 ribbing until it was 20cm from armpits.

  • ran out of lime yarn, so added a bit of grey to the bottom to make sweater long enough.
