I'm looking to make a baby sweater

Something fairly simple/easy, but not boring

I feel like I've looked through a million patterns and have yet to find something appealing


Also, I'm not looking to use needles any smaller than a size 5

Not sure what you consider boring or too hard, but here's a few.

I knit this recently, and just adore it: Not So Baby Yoda Sweater (http://soozs.blogspot.com/2007/08/not-so-baby-yoda.html)

Or the original Baby Yoda Sweater (http://www.shokay.com/shokay_yarn/pdf/Baby_Yoda_Sweater_Cari_Luna.pdf), if you want it in a smaller size :)

I made this one, which was listed by someone else here: http://carole.barenys.com/YokeSweater.html (http://carole.barenys.com/YokeSweater.html). It ws quick and not boring and came out very well.

I did the larger size, but plan on doing the smaller one as a gift. I used cast offs as decreases (makes a nice edge on the slope of the front), and knit front & back for the increases in the sleeve.

It really is a sweet little sweater. I added about an inch to the length so it would fit longer. I have a photo up in the What'cha Knitting forum.

Thank you

I started on the second one

It looks so pretty with the yarn I chose :)
