The Ruth Baby Ginsburg is the baby/toddler version of my Knitorious RBG sweater, but knit out of washable yarn! The design ensures that the sweater will fit for many months/years to come with the sweater becoming a crop and the extra fabric of the bubble sleeves providing additional length as the kiddo grows!

Size US 7 / 4.5 mm, 16” and 24” circular needles (cable lengths can vary depending on size)
Size US 7 / 4.5 mm DPNs (for the sleeves)
Size US 5 / 3.75mm, 16” circular needles (for bottom and neck ribbing)

Sizing:

I made this piece with 2-4” positive ease so that it would fit a growing child for longer! Choose a size with the chest measurement that is about 2-4” larger than the actual chest circumference.
