The last FO of 2007, became the first handknit sweater for my newphew in 2008. I used 2.25 skeins of Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece yarn on 3.5 mm Addi Turbo's, at 6 sts x 9 rows per inch, in a simple baskeweave cardigan. I roughly followed the formula to Barbara Walker's Knitting from the Top Seamless Set-in Sleeve, Simultaneous Method. This has become my favorite sweater pattern formula. All in all, it was both a challenge and pleasure to knit. Too bad they don't stay small enough for very long. Maybe sis will have another, and we can hand it down to the next little one.


  1. You did an outstanding job on this! I am sure it will be well worn and loved and passed down for many generations.

  2. how adorable! you are quite skilled, Mei! I'm so thankful to have you as a resource (and friend!)

  3. So cute! I now have to hunt for that method for baby sweaters. I made a sweater for my neice, but I was wondering if there's a better method for baby sweaters. I'll check it out.
