This cute and modern, top-down, raglan sleeved sweater is very easy to make. Because of the special stitch I used, the sweater has that knitted look. Plus, it’s very stretchable and warm.

This baby pullover is worked from top down, in one piece, so no assembly is needed! Most of the pullover is worked in continuous spiral. Only the yoke is made in joined rounds. The body (after separating it from sleeves) and the sleeves are made in continuous spiral, so they’re seamless.

The pattern comes in four sizes: 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-12 months and 12-18 months. My intention for this pattern was to make a beautiful, simple baby garment with clean lines, but very practical and wearable at the same time.

I designed this sweater making sure that the collar is big and stretchable enough for a gentle baby’s head.

The pattern is very detailed, with more than 120 step-by-step pictures. There is a crochet chart for teddy bear applique, as well as step-by-step tutorial, and written pattern. All main parts of the process of making a sweater (how to measure your gauge, how to make chainless foundation, how to separate sleeves from the body, how to make sleeves, how to decrease with hdc) are given in step-by-step tutorials.
