Teddy's Cowboys Sweater
Posted 09 September 2008 - 11:02 PM
Two weeks ago my dog (whose name is Ted E. Bear) got hold of my stuffed teddy bear, tore his pretty red ribbon off, and chewed off his eyes. I decided that poor teddy needed a new shirt. I found a pattern for a Pullover Sweater for Babies, at Kelly's blog page, I adapted it and made Teddy a new sweater. I am posting it here with permission from Kelly (who told me she wants to make a couple for her dad & brother). So Kelly, here's to you and your great baby sweater pattern!
The sweater pattern can be found at: http://bellabambinaknits.blogspot.com/2007/04/pullover-sweater-for-babies.html
My changes are as follows:
Follow Kelly's pattern to Row 8,
Rows 9-15: Ch 3 Do not turn, work in rounds now,dc in each dc around, join.
Rnd 16: ch 1 sc around, join. Fasten off.
Attach yarn at middle of underarm with sl st.
Row 1: ch 3, dc around, join.
Rows 2-4: Repeat row 1. At the end of Row 4 fasten off.
Row 5: join white with sl st in ending st, ch 1, sc around. Fasten off
Row 6-7: join gray, ch 1 sc around. Fasten off.
Row 8: join white, ch 1 sc around. Fasten off.

Repeat for other sleeve.
Rnd 1: 5 sc in second ch from hook, join.
Rnd 2: *Ch 9, sc in 3rd ch from, hdc in next 2bch, dc in next 3 ch, skip next sc on first row, sl st in second sc on first row, repeat from * around, join.
