I love that this pattern is easiest enough for a beginner to tackle. Great way to learn how to knit a sweater. I will be making this for a friend's new grandbaby. I think to make it my own, I will be adding some crocheted flowers and buttoms unique. When I find a super easy and quick pattern I like to make a couple to donate to hospital for mama's that have no special things to dress baby in.

This looks perfect for a beginner, which my sister is and she has a grandbaby due this month!! Will get her started on this...thx

Brilliant easy pattern I made this for my baby Granddaughter.

Garter stitch is my favorite pattern because it means plain knitting! This pattern is great because the first three inches of the back, front and sleeve are knitted separately in garter stitch, which means they can be knit while watching TV! But knitting the rest of it will need special dedicated time as there is a lot of decreasing going on to shape the sweater

I just made this cardigan for my new nephew--he looks so cute in it!

i am trying to open the link for the pattern but cant get it open. where can i get it . please help

I really enjoyed knitting this little coat,the pattern was easy to follow and it looks brill.

I'm a fairly experienced knitter and I'm not even going to TRY this pattern. The instructions are too confusing and there are plenty of patterns with very clear/professional instructions. Sorry

not sure what you are going on about-this pattern was remarkably clear-I made 2 in less than a week for my god daughter who is having twins. They worked out so well, i've taken the pattern to my knitting group to make for the hospitals. I think its unfair of you to blame the designer for your lack of skills or understanding of the pattern.


Hello I am really struggling with the decreasing element of this pattern. I have read and re-read the pattern, but I cannot see how it works. There are way too many stitches left, soI'm guessing that part of it must be repeated. Help, please!! Thanks Vanessa
