The Friday Sweater Baby is worked from the top down in broken rib with raglan increases. The neck edge is worked in rib and folded. Cuffs and hem are also worked in rib.

Begin by working a swatch to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge. Remember to wash your swatch before measuring the gauge – as broken rib grows with wash.

Size guide

The Friday Sweater Baby is designed to have approx. 10-13 cm [4-5 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 10-13 cm [4-5 inches] larger in circumference than chest measurement of the child. The measurements of the finished sweater can be found on the front page of the pattern. Before beginning your project, measure the child to determine which size will fit the best. For example, if the child’s chest measurement is 44 cm [17¼ inches], you should knit size 6-9 months. A sweater size 6-9 months has a chest circumference of 56 cm [22 inches] which in the given example would give a sweater with 12 cm [4¾ inches] of positive ease.
