Teddy Sweater KAL

I am so excited to bring this sweater to you. I have had this idea for a while, but only recently had time to fit it into my schedule. I wished I had done it sooner as it has immediately become one of my favorites.  Teddy Sweater is a unisex top down raglan pullover worked up at a DK weight with the added cuteness of a teddy bear face on the front “kangeroo” pocket. The pattern size runs from 3months to size 6.

Teddy Sweater is knit up in Malabrigo Arroyo, which creates a beautiful fabric at DK gauge. A perfect transitional garment for your little one.

Now, to celebrate how excited I am about this pattern, I decided to do a KAL in my group on Ravelry. The pattern is up for sale, but the KAL will begin on Monday to give everyone a chance to enjoy the holida weekend and get yarn together. The KAL will run through May 6th.

A funny little story about this pattern. When I initially sketched and swatched this, my 5 year old son was not even the least bit interested. So, I knit the sample in another size and moved on. When he saw it finished, he told me he wanted one, now. He wanted it red, with a black bear pocket. So, I will be knitting his during the KAL…not that I will finish as I have about 20 things on the needles, but I will try!  I hope you will stop by and knit with us. It should be fun. There will be some random pattern giveaways and a few prizes for participants, too.
