Diamond Brocade Toddler Sweater

March 11, 2014

 copyright - all rights reserved 2014©

 

 

 

 

This sweater will fit a 2 year old perfectly and would look great with a shirt underneath. Overall it is easy to knit although if you are a beginner and you are not familiar with some techniques you will need to look them up. (M1, picking up stitches, DPN knitting...)

  • 250g DK Yarn

  • 3.25mm needles

  • 4mm needles

  • 5 3.25mm dpn

  • a few long and short markers or yarn

  • a measuring tape

We will start to decrease the sides. Place a marker near the edge on the last row so it's easy for you to measure later on.

 

Row 1 K2tog, K11, *P1, K9, P1, K1. Rep from* 3 more times, K10 K2tog.

Row 2 P2tog, P9, K1, *P1, K1, P7, K1, P1, K1. Rep from* 3 more times,  P9, P2tog.

Row 3 K2tog, K9, *P1, K1, P1, K5, (P1, K1) twice. Rep from* 3 more times,  K8, K2tog.

Row 4 P2tog, P8, *(P1, K1) twice, P3, K1, P1, K1, P2. Rep from* 3 more times,  P7, P2tog.

Row 5 K2tog, K7, *K2, (P1, K1) 3 times, P1, K3. Rep from* 3 more times,  K6, K2tog

Row 6 P2tog, P6, *P3, (K1, P1) twice, K1, P4. Rep from* 3 more times,  P5, P2tog.

 

Continue the pattern without anymore decreases and stop when the armholes measure about 6.5cm (16 rows approx.). You should end with Row 4 (ws). Every K/P13 will become K/P7 and every K/P12 will become K/P6 for example the next 2 rows will be;

Row 7 K7, *K4, P1, K1, P1, K5. Rep from* 3 more times, K6

Row 8 P7*P3, (K1, P1) twice, K1, P4 Rep from* 3 more times, P6 etc...

 

 Find the center 9 sts and place them on a stitch holder or spare piece of yarn. Place the 26 sts on the right side of the sweater on another stitch marker or spare piece of yarn.
