Here's a free one for a preemie that can probably be adapted to fit larger babies. The patterns seems pretty clear to me; however, note that the "ssk" is not really a slip, slip, knit. It's a sl1, k2tog, psso.

GG - If one of your grandchildren has a largish teddy bear (say 15" tall) it would make a great sweater for one.

I almost wish I had seen your video before beginning - but it was really neat to keep knitting and wondering, learning to trust that the pattern would work out.

And Jan is right, EZ's instructions can be a bit cryptic, though Meg Swanson's BSJ DVD with pattern was really helpful.

That's really lovely. I like that it's bright and zingy instead of the normal pastel colours for a baby.

Thanks! Since we don't know what she's having yet, and I tend to knit slower than old people walk... I decided on some kid colored self striping sock yarn from my stash, to make sure baby had something handmade from it's <gulp> grand-aunt.

I'm not keen on the classic neutral green/yellow pastels _or_ the "new" neutral baby colors combining browns with a pastel of some sort. Just my opinion, but blech!
