I’ve added an updated pattern that includes more detailed instructions and fixes an error for the smaller size (the pdf is also a much smaller file now, thankfully)

This is a really simple sweater, knitted from the top down with contrasting color button bands and pockets. I love pockets on everything, so they are my favorite part of the pattern! The pockets are very easily done by knitting waste yarn while working the body and then picking up live stitches around the pocket and knitting a little pouch. I don’t expect many babies to actually use the pockets on this sweater, but they will look good while not using them!

This is a pretty simple pattern, however it has not been test knit by other knitters. It has only been knitted by me, and since I made it up everything made sense to me. So if you find a mistake (or just something that could be made clearer), please let me know. I’m pretty quick to respond, so don’t be shy!
