I have been looking on the internet for a top down hooded baby sweater and have had no luck, so I thought I would ask you lovely ladies if any of you have a pattern for a hooded baby sweater knit top down. I would really appreciate any help you can give me. Also I am looking to make a size 1 and a size 2. Thanks in advance and happy knitting :-)
This is a 'top down baby sweater' pattern that I think could have a hood added.http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/top-down-raglan-baby-sweater
You could maybe start with a 'provisional' cast on, then when the pattern is completed remove the provisional cast on and pick up the stitches add some increases evenly around the neck and knit up a hood.
Search at the top of this page for "hooded baby sweaters" and you will see my post. I have made many sweaters with this pattern.
Actually you should scroll down to "hooded baby cardigan CORRECTION " as Linda downloaded my pattern with a slight correction on the second page.
Good luck and happy knittting.
Thank you all for your suggestions. I really appreciate the information you have given me. Kim
I have used the same pattern many times. I love all Knitting Pure and Simple top down patterns. Diane Soucy makes them so easy to understand. Some are free and some are not, but they are not expensive either.
