I am trying to knit a raglan cardigan sweater for a three year old top down or bottom up on circular needles. Am aiming for no seams except under the arms. Does anyone have a pattern?
I have seen finished sweaters like this but do not have a pattern for one.

Thank you!

Here is a pattern that has been online for about 20 years. A zillion people have knit from this pattern. It's for child's size 2 to adult size 52, all gauges, and can be adapted for a pullover or cardigan. It's a great template to customize with special stitches or cables, when you are ready for that.

Have you used this pattern? I copied and have just finished reading. I'm a little confused by the first part about the increases at the neckline. Will read again in the morning and maybe it will make sense to me. :-)

There's a great book out on Toddlers Top Down sweaters. Easy to follow instructions for caridgans, pullovers, vests, etc.

Yes I have... Just follow it as written. It has you go back and forth a bit at the start to build up the back of the neckline higher than the front, then it eventually joins and has you knit circularly.

If you don't want any seams at all why don't you knit a gusset under the arms,as in a gansy pattern.No sewing required.

I used this one for my grandsons sweater and it is a bit fiddly to sort out the pattern but it knits up wonderfully. Will be using this again and again as he grows. (See avatar)

I use this to make sweaters from the top down for all different sized people. There is a chart that gives average measurements in case you haven't got the person there to measure.
