Some of you were interested in this little pullover I knit for my daughter recently. It's actually a simplified version of my pattern, Baby Sand Dollar!


All I did was work the body in stockinette instead of the mesh stitch. Next time I have a free minute, I'm planning to try the opposite combo - stockinette sleeves with mesh stitch body.


If you have the pattern (get it here) the modification is super simple. The "Mesh Over Yoke Increases" section becomes:


Round 1: (Knit to marker, sm, K1, *yo, sl1, k2, psso; repeat from *to last 2 sts before marker; k2, sm) twice.

Round 2, 4, 6: *kfb, k to last stitch before marker, kfb, sm; repeat from * to end (increase 8 sts each round).
