This baby pullover features a placket opening in the back for ease with dressing. There is about 1.5” of positive ease. The lace pattern at the center is deceptively simple, easily memorized, and fun to work.

It’s knit from the top down and is completely seamless. It can be finished with or without a rolled neck. The neck and shoulder areas are started separately and knit flat for a few rows, then joined at the front and the back after shaping the neck and creating the placket opening.

A fun, quick, and easy knit!
