Nana’s Pullover


Nana’s Sweater is a seamless baby sweater. The body and sleeves are worked in the round from the bottom up, then joined at the armholes. Decreases form the seamless set-in sleeve construction, and stitches are bound off for the neck shaping. The shoulders are shaped using short rows, and then bound off. Stitches are then picked up to work the neckband. You may find it easier to use the longer, larger circular after joining the body and sleeves until you decrease enough stitches to fit comfortably back onto the shorter circular.
