finished sweater set
this one I made using a an old Paton's pattern, it's an easy top down cardigan, you start with the collar. The pattern is from Paton's book # 120 " Quickerknits by Beehive" a little book 6" w x 9.5" tall, it's the first pattern on page 3 called FIRST SIZE LAYETTE. The yarn I used was Bernat Baby Softee and size 5 needles. I have also done this holding 2 strands of baby yarn together and size 6 needles which results in a little bit thicker, warmer sweater. The pattern also has a designs for "panties" or soakers.
