Storm Sweater Baby
The Storm Sweater Baby is worked from the top down in a texture pattern. First, the back yoke is worked back and forth. After this, stitches are picked up and knitted for each shoulders, which are then joined to form the front yoke. The front and back yoke are joined to form the body, which is worked straight down in the round. The sleeves are worked in the round on double-pointed needles or on a circular needle using the Magic Loop technique. A rib edge is worked along the neck, folded double and knitted down. The Storm Sweater Baby is worked in a texture pattern which has four different segments.
Begin by knitting a swatch to determine which needle size will give you the correct gauge – please note that both the stitch gauge and the row gauge needs to be correct for the sweater to end up having the measurements given at the top of the pattern. The swatch can be worked using a chart in the pattern.
