L'eggo My Waffle Rib Sweater - New Pattern

L’eggo My Waffle Rib Sweater is an almost-completely seamless, richly textured, and comfortable sweater for your favorite toddler or child. L’eggo looks great on little men and little women, and is roomy enough to last several seasons, even for fast-growing tykes.

L’eggo is worked in one piece from the top down. It is first worked back and forth, and then in the round below the button band opening. The waffle rib stitch pattern and the raglan and neck shaping increases are all shown on clear, user-friendly charts. The sleeves are worked down from held stitches on a magic loop (or double-pointed needles if preferred.) Finishing is minimal, with less than one inch of seaming at the base of the placket.

The pattern requires basic and intermediate knitting techniques: knit, purl, cast on, bind off, decreases (k2tog), increases (M1L and M1R), yarn over, reading charts, picking up stitches, knitting in the round, and simple seaming (whip stitch, back stitch, or crochet).

The pattern is written for 3 toddler and child sizes and includes: size measurements, clear instructions, written explanations of special stitches, a color-coded chart, and helpful pictures.

And in the month of February, you can get it on the cheap in my Ravelry store here when you use the coupon code Leap Year.

Happy Knitting!
