Perpendicular Pattern Now Available!

Perpendicular sweater - finished!

There’s been so much secret knitting going on I haven’t been able to post in so long! For shame! But at least I’ve finally written up the pattern for my baby pullover I call “Perpendicular.” Download the pattern on Ravelry now!

This super-strechy, super-cozy baby pullover is the perfect gift for the little ones in your life. Seamless and machine-washable, it’s an easy-to-wear and easy-to-care-for staple for your baby’s wardrobe. The generous ribbing allows for growth, and as baby’s arms get longer you can unroll the cuffs as needed, so this sweater should fit your wee one for months on end.

The sweater is first knit cuff-to-cuff, leaving live stitches at the underam to pick up later when you pick up the body stitches. You can leave the neck unfinished for a boat-neck look, or pick up stitches to make a crew neck.

I originally knit the pattern for this little guy, who seems to enjoy wearing it:

Nashua Bear

    Hi,
    This is a really cute pattern but I am having problems when I get to the 2nd armhole. After creating the provisional stitches, I don’t understand how I can work 24 rounds (for size 24 months) in the 2×2 rib without beginning the decrease. This would not be consistent with the other sleeve which decreases much earlier.
    ?????
    Thank you for any help you can provide.

    figured out my error…
    I decided that I did not want the sleeves that long so I quit knitting at 7.5 inches instead of 10”. If I had knit the full 10 inches there would be a series of no increase rows approaching the arm hole. Now I just have to figure out how many rows I actually did knit after the last increase sequence so I can do the same thing with the second sleeve.
    thank you for the pattern and inspiration
