Revised 7/29/2014

Pocket instructions on page 23 have been updated. 

Pockets (Make 2)

The pockets are knitted separately and sewed on. 

Cast on 15 sts. Work back and forth in St st for 15 rows, then knit in Garter st for 5 rows. Bind off all sts.


For each pocket, position the inside edge an inch from Garter st front flap and cast-on edge about an inch up from the sweater hem. Using mattress stitch, with RS facing out, sew cast on edge of pocket to cardigan. Using whipstitch, sew inside and outside edges, leaving top edge open. Repeat for other pocket.

In the Body section, for the buttonhole flaps, if you already know whether it's a little girl or boy, only work the buttonholes on the appropriate side, keeping the opposite band in Garter st. 

After the Buttonhole Row instruction, the next few sentences should read: Work a Buttonhole Row on the next row, then every 12th (14th, 14th, 16th, 17th, 19th) row two more times. Place a locking stitch marker through any stitch of the last buttonhole row to help you determine when to begin the armholes.

From here, both the Collar and Armholes are worked at the same time; read both sections before proceeding.


On the 12th row after the last Buttonhole Row (marked with a locking marker)....


In the Sleeve Cap section, the instructions to work a decrease row should read: Work a Decrease Row every row 4 (5, 5, 6, 6, 7) times, then every other row 7 (5, 6, 7, 7, 8) times. 20 (26, 26, 24, 26, 24) sts.
