Four tiny top-down sweaters to knit

Based on the Everyday Cardigan and Everyday Pullover patterns that were designed for adult women, Everyday Baby is a collection of simple quick knits for Newborn to 4T.

The main pattern (View A) is a long-sleeved cardigan with a ribbed yoke and seed-stitch accents. View B switches out the long sleeves for simple cap sleeves, which are created with the use of short rows. Views C and D are pullover variations, one for each sleeve length.

Knit almost entirely in stockinette stitch, the pattern is straightforward enough for a motivated beginner, but includes some special details to add visual interest. Using only a few hundred yards of yarn, and working up in a couple of evenings, these tiny sweaters are nearly instant-gratification, and fabulous stash-busters, too!


The project is geared towards motivated beginners. If you have these skills:

Long-tail cast-on
Picking up stitches views A+D only
Short rows views B+C only
Backwards loop cast-on
Basic bind-off

then you can do this.
