Boy Sweater on Number 2 Needles

2 Sep

When Isabelle and I visited Abby and her family this summer she was in the throes of packing but was kind enough to dictate her formula for little baby sweaters.  She knits them on number 1 needles using sock yarn. They are her version of E. Zimmerman’s percentage method.

Abby even gave me the wool sock yarn this sweater is mostly knit from– on number two needles.  Yes, there was a mix-up.  Number two was in the air that day.  It will fit someone older, though–a toddler.

I did add a garter stitch border to the loser edge to keep it from rolling.
