Sideways Sockyarn Baby Sweater
My goal for this pattern was to create an easy to knit side-to-side baby sweater, with as few seams as possible (because I really hate sewing seams). The knitting is straight forward, and any sock weight or fingering weight yarn should work wonderfully. Sock yarn that has 20% nylon should also have the advantage of being machine washable, making these sweaters as practical as they are unique. The patterned sock-yarns work up wonderfully, with sock-like striping on the sleeves, and the patterns shift in interesting ways on the body. The version I knit from Koigu also worked up gorgeously but with much more subtle, softer striping. The huge number of choices for sock-yarn give endless variations. The picture shows models knit from Opal, Koigu, and Regia yarn.
The pattern sizing includes instructions for newborns, 3 months, 6 months, 12 months, and 18 months, but I have also included instructions for knitting a size that will fit a standard 18" doll.
