Excellent written directions!I purchased this free pattern not expecting the results that I got. I am now working on the 3rd baby sweater and am very happy with the ease of the directions and the end result of the baby sweater. This one is easily done for a boy or girl, just add the appropriate buttons on the side intended. Instead of doing buttonholes, I got the snaps on a strip and sewed it to the button band and then attached buttons. This way the mom or dad can easily put the sweater on and off and don't have to mess with buttonholes when baby is moving.
Firstly why do we need circular needles if we're knitting back and forth and secondly in 1st row it says PM 8 times yet we only want 4 stitch markers in total, what am I reading wrong?

This sweater is worked in one piece, because of the number of sts you need a circular needle, straight needles would not hold all of the sts. Sorry about the st marker, you will need 8.

Making largest size; at end of the first section I have 164 sts, as in pattern then add 8 is 172, then 2 more inc rows is 188 sts not 192. Going by 8 st additions, you can't get 192.

It seems the number of stitches do not work in the directions for the knitted baby sweater. They seem to be 6 stitches short. Has anyone else run into this?
Asked by: Bancye
Hello, At this time we have no corrections for the Knit Baby Jacket Set. I have double checked the stitch count for the 1st row after the neckband and it all worked out as written. Remember that when you do a M1 to follow the instructions under abbreviations. --- M1 = Make 1 stitch by picking up loop lying before next stitch and knitting into back of loop
