The Dog Ate My Homework Children's Pullover

Were you the type of kid who was always looking for an easier, less complicated way of doing things (or to not do them at all)? Do you love the look of set-in sleeves but don’t want to actually have to knit sleeves separately and seam them in? If so, this is for you. This pullover is virtually seamless and the sleeves are worked by picking up stitches around the armhole and working a series of short-rows to shape the cap.

The smallest three sizes (newborn-12 months) have a neck placket to facilitate getting the sweater over babies’ disproportionately large heads.

Techniques used: Short rows, slipped stitches, decreasing, picking up stitches.
