I designed this sweater for a friend’s child’s first birthday. I wanted something that would be quick and easy (kids grow so fast she’d outgrow it quickly!), inexpensive to knit (see above!) and give a lot of ‘bang’ for the effort- which is why I went with the pre-striping cake yarn; there’s no striping involved by the knitter. I love hoods on babies and the tie closures were at the request of the dad, who complained about the ‘tiny buttons’ so many of his daughter’s clothes had- but you can use toggles, clasps, zipper, etc. Body is knit in one piece (fewer seams!), hood is another piece, sleeves are in the round- very little finishing!

Hooded raglan jacket in worsted weight yarn. Moss stitch edges with toggle/zipper/tie closure. Knit in the round for easy finishing. Shown in size 12 months.
