Well, it took me several years to write down this baby sweater knitting pattern after knitting it for several children and grandchildren. It’s a classic Icelandic design pullover sweater, but with an easy-on rolled neckline for babies and toddler girls and boys. The style is boxy and the sleeves are hemmed, allowing for more than one season of wear. IMG_0497

The colorwork is really simple and doesn’t use but two colors stranded at any one time. I used Berroco Ultra Alpaca 50/50 Peruvian wool and alpaca. The alpaca provides the softness and the wool provides the body. It’s a beautiful worsted yarn, worked on a US 8 (5mm) circular needle for the most part.

With its generous boxy shape and neat little hems, it will suit for more than one season. The design allows for sleeves to be turned up the first year and down the next season of wear. Finished measurements unblocked are Chest: 24 in (61.5 cm), Length from nape to hem: 16 in (41 cm), Sleeves from underarm: 10 in (26 cm). So would definitely fit 12 to 24 months and with washing, even longer.

The felted tote bag I told you about recently is finished. You can find the link for a felted bag pattern I made earlier, below. The free knitting pattern works well with KnitPicks 100% wool yarn. Always heave a sigh of relief to get one of these handbags finished, more or less 30-35 hours of work. These handbags are great for carrying all year round, but especially fall, winter, and spring. This one is posted on Etsy now,  the “Chicken or the egg felted cross-body tote bag.” Eclectic and one-of-a-kind!
