Moby Slipover Baby
The Moby Slipover Baby is worked from the top down in a texture and cable pattern. First the back yoke is worked. After this, stitches are picked up and knitted for the 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. Rib edges are worked along the neck edge and armholes.
Knit a swatch to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge – note that this can vary from yarn to yarn. Take care to wash the swatch before measuring, as the texture pattern can grow with wash.
