New Pattern - Eyelet Ridge Sweater May 23, 2016 06:22
Recently, I talked about the Eyelet Ridge Hat pattern, and mentioned that it was the first of a series of Eyelet Ridge patterns. Well, here's the next pattern in that series— published by Knittin' Little! The Eyelet Ridge Sweater is sized to fit babies 6-months old through children 12-years old!
This pattern is available from Knittin' Little on Ravelry, and right here on my website. Like all the newly published patterns I post on my website, I'm offering $1.50 off the pattern!

The garter eyelet stitch pattern, worked all over the body and sleeves of this sweater, makes it a great transitional-weather sweater. It's warm yet airy, so your little one will stay warm without overheating. The body and sleeves are knit separately to the underarms, where they are joined and worked together to the shoulders. The tops of the sleeve caps are finished of with a few short-rows, and the tops of the shoulders are joined using a three-needle bind-off. The button and neckbands are picked up and knit in a k2, p2 ribbing. It's a clever seamless construction that is clearly written out step-by-step, making it simple to follow and really fun to knit!
It's knit using Quince & Co.'s Finch—a 100% American wool yarn or Spud & Chloë's Fine—80% superwash wool and 20% silk. The Eyelet Ridge patterns are written for 7.25 stitches per inch. I would recommend giving Finch or Fine a try, or any fingering-weight wool or wool-blend yarn would look great in this pattern—especially in merino. If you plan on substituting, you'll need about 520 (590, 690, 790, 960, 1150, 1330, 1550, 1740) yards.
