Named for astronomer and mathematician Galileo Galilei, this adorable crochet sweater is an excellent project for mastering basic techniques, such as single crochet, double crochet, and seaming. The simple stripe pattern and easy shaping make it a quick and enjoyable project. The pattern includes five sizes (from 0-24 months) and buttonhole instructions for both boy’s and girl’s versions.
