Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Summer 2009: “When I think of knitted heirlooms, I think of luxury fibers. This tiny sweater is worked in baby alpaca - luxurious enough to cherish but still affordable. The sweater is simple in construction, with only a few details that enhance the sweater but still allow the yarn to take center stage.”

Finished Size: 19 (21, 23)“ chest circumference, to fit 3–6 (9–12, 18–24) months. Sweater shown measures 21”.

Yarn: Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca D. K. (100% baby alpaca; 125 yd 115 m/50 g): #100 white, 4 (4, 5) balls.


  • Body—size 4 (3.75 mm): 24” circular (cir).
  • Sleeves—size 4 (3.75 mm): set of double-pointed (dpn). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions: Markers (m); cable needle (cn); stitch holders; one 1¼“ button; one 21 mm sew-on snap; tapestry needle.
