I only knit occasionally, but I've made 2 sweaters and 2 winter hats for our 1 year old grandson. This is sweater number 3 - sized for next winter. I had finished knitting the pieces a while ago, but since I'm a bit under the weather, and I don't feel like wrestling with the king size quilt, I prepped the pieces for blocking.
The front and back are identical. The design is a twist stitch that looks like a small cable.
It has set in sleeves, and the ribbing at the neckline overlaps at the centre of the shoulders.
The sleeves have 3 twist bands as well.
The yarn is from Premier yarns and is called Cotton Fair Multi - 52% cotton and 48% acrylic. I'm allergic to wool, and this is one of the few yarns that I found that was the correct weight for the pattern, and machine washable - good for little people.
The pattern is from a book called "Beehive for Bairns", which belonged to my mother. I think she used it to knit for my brothers and for me when I was a baby. That makes it between 60-75 years old.
I'm linking up with other knitters at Judy's blog, Patchwork Times.
