Inspiration & Other Info About The Toddler Sweater Knitting Pattern
The inspiration behind The Toddler Sweater comes from my sweet little man, who just entered toddlerhood (yay!). When he entered toddlerhood, the weather began to shift, and the colder season was quickly approaching (and my baby bump with baby #2 was quickly growing), so I knew I needed to design a sweater that was fast and easy to knit, so that I could make a few before baby arrives. Both of my sons will be born in the colder seasons, so I'm especially excited that these sweaters will have double the usage, as perfect little hand-me-downs to baby brother this time next year! This sweater is designed in sizes 1T, 2T, and 3T.
I was careful in designing specific elements of this sweater to be (somewhat) toddler-proof, to hold up throughout the years, and (of course!) to be quick and easy to clean...because honestly what mom what time to hand-wash knitwear? Not me!
I designed the neck to be a double-neck, so that it's extra durable to withstand snags and baby tugging/pulling when popping it over their head. Also, the double-knit neck serves as extra warmth. The classic raglan construction is quick, fast, and easy -- making it a mindless knit for Mama during naptimes! The lovely, prominent ribbing on the neck, cuffs, and bottom really gives this sweater a nice 'pop' and the overall tweed yarn chosen makes it an adorable fall/winter accessory. Overall, this sweater knitting pattern is a quick, fun project and I think you'll be surprised by how quickly you can make one for your little love(s)! Happy knitting! xx
