for Knitting Pure and Simple

211 Baby Tunic (6 months - 2 years)

Soucy: "A sweet baby pullover hoodie knitted from the top down in worsted weight yarn. Knits up fast in many different yarns, and is a popular baby gift! Many knitters omit the hood and add a ribbed collar." (This is incredibly easy since the garment starts at the neck anyway; the hood is picked up from there and worked after the fact.) Choices abound, making this charming little piece seasonless: make it in cotton, or wool, or even cashmere. Would look fabulous in variegates or hand-dyed yarns, too. The wee side vents allow for plenty of movement (and amply-cushioned bottoms). Popular demand led to the creation of the version for children aged 2 - 12, available here. And to top it all off, Soucy offers a very detailed, illustrated knit-along guide to her top-down sweaters here.
