Knit a wee piece of tradition with this sweet little pullover. This miniature interpretation of the fisherman’s guernsey is an easy introduction to the tradition. You’ll enjoy the simple knit-purl textures and the straightforward drop should construction. And the small button closure makes it easier to fit over a baby’s head.

Skills needed
Knit/purl, mattress stitch, picking up and knitting.

Construction notes
This sweater is worked flat in four pieces and then sewn together at the shoulders, sides, and underarms.The neck edge is picked up and knit with button closure at the center back neck.
