Baby boat neck, 3/4 sleeve pullover

pullover with lap shoulder and slit cuffs. I knit this in the round up to the armholes, then divided for front and back.

Materials: Approximately 2 oz MC sport-weight yarn, small amount CC sport weight.

Size 3 and size 5 16" circular needles and dpns for sleeves and necklines

Gauge: I did this at 20 sts/ 4 in. with larger needles. Sized for 3-6 months


CO 92 sts on size 3 circulars with CC, join into circle and work knit one purl one ribbing for five rows.

Switch to MC and larger needles; work in stockinette till piece measures 4 1/2 inches. Divide for armholes.

On front: Bind off 3 stitches at the beginning of the next 4 rows (so 6 sts each side, total). Work even for 5 rows, then increase one stitch each side, next two rows. Work even for another five rows. I used short rows for the neckline rather than binding off. As follows:

Row 1: Knit across 11 stitches, turn

Row 2+4: Purl across

Row 3: Knit across 13 stitches, picking up wrapped stitch as you come to it, turn

Row 5: Knit to end

Row 6: Purl back 11 sts, turn

Row 7+9: Knit across

Row 8: Purl 13 stitches, picking up wrapped stitch as you come to it, turn

Row 10: Purl across

Switch to CC and smaller needles, work 5 rows K1,P1 rib, bind off

On Back: As front until increases, then work another 10 rows, not 5. Short row for neckline same as front.

Overlap ribbed edging at shoulders (to make a lap shoulder). Sew down.


Around armhole edge, pick up 2 from overlapped shoulder,18 sts front, 18 sts back, and two more from overlapped shoulder. Start of rnd is at top center

Rnds 1-5: Knit

Rnd 6: K 16, K2tog, SSK, K 16

Rnds 7-12: Knit

Rnd 13: K 15, K2 tog, SSK, K15

Rnds 14-21: Knit

Rnd 22: K 14, K2tog, SSK, K 14

Rnds 23-30: Knit

Switch to smaller dpns, and CC, work 5 rows back and forth in K1P1 rib with a 3 st I-cord border (to make slit). Bind off. Repeat on other side.

Weave in ends, block as desired.

This pattern is for your own personal use only, and so forth and so on.

I'm probably not going to be making this any time soon, but I wanted to be sure to swear that Brenna indeed is one of the world's cutest sweetbabygurls. The other is Bug (

And the sweater is adorable as well.
