Baboodie - a baby hoodie to knit
The sweater is knit from the hood down to the bottom in one piece. After knitting the yoke increases, you put the sleeve stitches off on waste yarn and knit the body of the sweater. Then go back and knit the sleeves flat and seam them or knit them seamless in the round. You'll need 3 buttons, 200 yards of Aran or heavy worsted weight yarn and size 9 circular knitting needles. (For worsted weight I would suggest size 8 needles which will give you a slightly smaller sweater.)
The sweater should fit sizes 6-14 months. Buttoned my sweater measured 18.5" around the chest.
The four page pattern has written instructions. You can purchase it in my Ravelry store for $2.00.
