US 6 needles, straights and DPN’s
For a co-worker’s baby-to-be.
I must confess I altered this pattern a bit. You are supposed to work each sleeve back and forth and then pick up the stitches for the body. To make this completely seamless I chose to place the sleeve stitches on spare yarn, cast on the underarm stitches and knit the body. After that I picked up the underarm stitches and the sleeve stitches on DPN’s and knit in the round. I also picked up three stitches on either side of the yoke and knit i-cord for a tie rather than use buttons. This was an aesthetic choice as well as a safety issue. I wouldn’t want a phone call telling me a curious teething baby had eaten buttons off something I made them!
