Inspiration & Other Info About The Baby Sweater Knitting Pattern
Inspiration for this precious sweater design comes from my adorable little man, who is the exceptional model for this photoshoot! While he can't walk or talk yet, he already has a knack for fall fashion - hah! I was eager to design a sweater for babies, newborn to 12 months, so that regardless of how old baby is when fall/winter rolled around, there would be a size available to knit for him or her. With another baby boy on the way again, I'm excited to dress a little newborn in a cozy sweater, since he'll be arriving this fall. I love timeless, classic knitwear designs, so that's why I incorporated only simple Stockinette Stitch for this sweater, and included details such as a prominent rib and a double-knit neck for added warmth, cozy, and - let's face it - durability! I designed each sweater size to have a little positive ease built in, from 1" to 4", depending on the age, and I think that's a good amount to grow with baby as the months progress.
The Baby Sweater is seamlessly knitted on double-pointed and circular knitting needles top-down, which makes it a super quick project. The neck is worked first, then short rows shape the neckline so that the front of the sweater scoops down for comfortable wear. After, the yoke is grown, the sleeves are divided, then the body of the sweater is finished. Lastly, each sleeve is worked to finalize the sweater. Since it's knitted in one quick piece (yay!), there's no need for any seaming. Overall, this is a quick and easy (and really enjoyable) pattern to make a beautiful keepsake to treasure forever.
