This sweater will fit infants from 0-6 months of age. It’s a fairly quick project that can be completed over a weekend. Some images show an optional lining, which will be covered in a still-to-come errata link video.

You can use either circular or straight size 8 needles for this. I used straight needles.

Size 8 (5mm) needles
Tapestry Needle
1/2” buttons
Thread (for buttons)

This is the project I’m using to film my “Learn to Knit” series. If you have any difficulty with any of the techniques used in the pattern, I encourage you to use these videos as reference.

Video One: Casting on, knitting, purling, turning, and slip stitches.

Video Two: Binding off and decreasing stitches

Video Three: Blocking, Seams, and Pulling Up Stitches
