Thank you SO MUCH to Pam Arbram, Sharron Devonport, 

Maralyn Rivoallen, Lynley Melville, and Diane Brooks 

who test knitted this size.

You did a great job!  

Requirements:

80g DK yarn

4mm needles

3 small buttons

 

Measurements:

Width:                               18½”  

Length:                             10½“

Sleeve length:                   6”

 

Instructions:


Begin with the Sleeves (work 2)

Cast on 30sts      

Knit 8 rows

Work 40 rows in stocking stitch, increasing one stitch at each end of 5th, 11th, 17th, 23rd and 29th rows      (40sts)

The sleeve should now measure around 6” – you can add more rows if required

Next Row:  Cast off 3sts, work to last 3sts, cast off 3sts   (34sts)


                          TOP TIP   To cast off at the end of a row ~

You work across the row until you have 3sts on your left hand needle . Knit the first st, knit the second st, and pass the first over the second. 

Knit the last st and pass the second st over it. You will now have a loop - cut the yarn and pull it through the loop. Easy !  

Leave these 34 stitches on a spare needle, or stitch holder

  1. I really do prefer top-down sweaters, but at least this one joins the sleeves to the body so there are not pieces to be sewn together at the end.

  2. Beautiful. Have you a pattern for larger sizes ? 12 months ?

    ReplyDelete
  3. I'll be trying this one out for our local charity knitting group. Thanks for this it's really pretty.

  4. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely patterns. I now have some very well-dressed grandchildren! I have really enjoyed making these lovely baby clothes, they all work out exactly and are never mysterious or misleading like many patterns I have tried.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I would also be interested in how to adapt this for a larger size. Babies outgrow the 0 - 3 month size so quickly; I prefer to make a 6 or 12 month size. Maybe using worsted weight would do it; it would help to know the gauge as well. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Also, DK in the UK and DK in the US may be different, which is why the gauge is helpful.

  7. Hi there. PLs can anyone tell me how to add extra button holes - I would like buttons from the top to the bottom but am unsure how soon to add after casting on.
    Love these patterns :-) xx

  8. Good morning and sorry to ask but im a little confused in the pattern for the main part it states "The last 10 rows form the pattern"

    Repeat these 10 pattern rows twice more, this only takes me to row 30 not 37 as in the pattern, can you please help me. Im new to all this.
    Thank you in advance

    1. You’ve probably figured this out already, but you knit 3 X 10 rows of pattern...equals 30 rows plus the first 6 rows gives you 36 rows.

  9. I have knitted quite a few of your patterns and can I say that I have loved every one that I have done. They are so brilliantly explained and a pleasure to knit.

  11. Is there a pattern for matching HAT and booties?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Help please on sewing in sleeves. All tutorials seem to be a sleeve sewn in the round. These are flat. Confused how to join. Newer knitter. I am sure is easy. .

    ReplyDelete

    1. Join from the bottom of the sleeve up. Then join the 6 cast off stitches at the top of the sleeve (3 on each side of the seam) with the 6 cast off stitches on the body at the armhole. I hope this helps. M
