Knitting for someone is really special. It’s a way of showing love, care and appreciation. I love the idea of knitting for someone small, a lovely garment that will give warmth and comfort and the feeling of being loved and comforted and cared for.

Design
“Where love grows” is a cozy, classic, unisex, super-comfortable pullover.
The rib-pattern of the body gives lots of room and freedom, the pretty cables climbing up the sleeves and centre front embelllishes, the raglan ensures a great fit.

Sizes
- up to 6mo / 6-9mo / 12mo / 18mo – 2yo /3yo - 4yo / 5yo /6yo / 8yo Finished chest measurement: 48/51.5/55/59/63/67/70/73cm =19/20.25/21.75/23.25/24.75/26.25/28.75”

Construction
Completely seamless construction. Bottom-up and in-the-round for lower body and sleeves to underarms. Pieces are joined and continued in one piece for upper body. The increases of the sleeves are worked invisibly towards the cables.
The neckline is worked in-the-round from picked-up-sts.

Materials
I was SO lucky to try out the beautiful worsted weight yarn, Drift, from Shibui knits. It was really lovely to work:)
Yarn: I recommend that you use a worsted weight yarn with great stitch-definition. It is important that you work according to gauge to achieve a great result! I used the beautiful worsted weight yarn, Drift, from Shibui. This yarn comes in skeins of 50gr/1.75oz and 101meters/110 yards. You will need 3/3/3/4/4/5/6/7 skeins of this specific yarn to work the pullover. If adding length to sleeves and/or body you must count for more yarn. Needles: A circular needle, 60cm/24”, needle-size 4mm/US6 to work the ribbed hem of the lower body. A circular needle, 60cm/24”, needle-size 4.5mm/US7 to work the main body, and the upper body. A set of 5 dpns (or a circular needle, if working the magic loop), needle-size 4mm/US6 to work the cuffs. A set of 5 dpns (or a circular needle, if working the magic loop), needle-size 4.5mm/US7 to work the sleeves, as well as the last part of the upper body, when you cannot any longer use the circular needle. A small circular needle, 40cm/16”, needle-size 4mm/US6 to work the neckline. Use needle size to obtain gauge. Notions: 10 stitch-markers. Cable-needle. Tapestry needle. Separate holders. Row counter.

Gauge: 20 sts and 28 rounds in stockinette sts = 10x10cm/4x4”. 21 sts and 28 rounds in rib-pattern, slightly stretched out = 10x10cm/4x4”. I used needles, size 4.5mm/US7 to obtain gauge.

The pattern

All stitch-counts are given. The cable is charted AS WELL AS written out round-by-round. There is a schematic.
