Baby sweater with sock yarn
Does anyone know of a pattern for a baby sweater using sock yarn? I have three balls of Lion Brand Magic Stripes in the blue/brown colorway and think it would make an adorable sweater for my friend's soon-to-be-arriving baby boy. (One can only have so many pastel blue outfits, after all!) I've found one with Opal yarn, if I remember correctly, but it had vertical stripes, and I'm looking for horizontal stripes.

Thanks in advance!

Bee's Knees has some cute ones, but they are not free (but not terribly expensive either)

I have a very very small yarn and pattern online shop - I carry really cute kids sweater patterns.

opal baby sweater
There is an adorable sweater pattern free on knitting central. Go into the baby category and then click on baby sweater (I think it is the second one). If you scroll through a few projects you will come to a striped effect sweater made from the sock wool. They are modelling it on a teddy bear. Easy to do and looks great too!

OK, sock yarn for a baby sweater sounds interesting, esp with the stripes. But, isn't sock yarn thin, how does that work for a sweater?
Do you need to double it?

Quite a lot of older baby patterns call for using fingering yarn, which is about the same weight as sock yarn. Yes, you need small needles for it.
