[IMG]http://www.shadownews.net/pictures/TeddysSweater.JPG[/IMG]
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:
Body
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.

Sleeves
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.
Row 9-10: join blue, ch 1 sc around. Fasten off.

Repeat for other sleeve.

Star
Ch 2
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.
Rnd 3: Ch 1, *skip next sc, sc in next 7 sts, (sc, ch2, sc in top of arm), sc in next 6 sts, repeat from * around. Fasten off.
Rnd 4: join white, ch1, *skip first sc, sc in next 7 sc, ch 3 sl st in first ch (to form picot) sc in next 7 sts, repeat from * around join, fasten off.
Sew star to front of shirt.
Don't forget to sew buttons on the back like Kelly says.
