to make this original design Eastport Alpaca baby pullover .

You can also buy the finished handknit sweater in my Etsy store under another listing.


This little sweater, in 4 sizes to fit baby from Newborn to 18 months, is knit in the round to the armhole shaping where the front and back are divided and worked separately.
The sleeves are also knit separately with a shaped cap then set-in for a fitted, more dressy look.

The Eastport Alpaca, either factory or Hand Spun, makes it extra luxurious and oh, so soft but you can use any soft natural fiber yarn that gives you the correct gauge.

As with all of my patterns I've chosen a yarn in a very common gauge so that your yarn substitutions will be easy to make.
Be sure to choose a very soft and luxurious natural fiber yarn. The simple design will make your luxury yarn "sing". It is especially lovely in handspun yarn which can be purchased at my web site or my Etsy store. Just mention the pattern and I'll spin it with this design in mind.

The design is classic and timeless, simple and elegant, always in fashion and perfect for heirloom knitting.
I wanted a simple but classy design for a little boy. The shaped armhole gives it a dressier, more fitted look. Of course, this would also look beautiful on a baby girl if knit in a complimentary colour.

A trio of buttons on the shoulder adds style and makes for easier dressing.
